Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp announces the return of a guilty verdict in the murder trial of Kashif Parvaiz, age thirty (30). Earlier this morning, the jury returned a verdict of guilty against Kashif Parvaiz on counts of Murder (a crime of the first degree), Conspiracy to Commit Murder (a crime of the first degree), two counts of Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose (crimes of the second degree), two counts of Unlawful Possession of a Weapon (crimes of the second degree), Prohibited Weapons and Devices (a crime of the fourth degree), Endangering the Welfare of a Child (a crime of the second degree), and Hindering One’s Apprehension (a crime of the third degree).
This prosecution stemmed from the arrest of Kashif Parvaiz for his role in the shooting death of his wife, Nazish Noorani, on Cedar Street in the Town of Boonton on the night of August 16, 2011.
Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Matthew Troiano and Assistant Prosecutor Erin Callahan represented the State during the prosecution of this matter.
This matter is scheduled for sentencing before the Honorable Robert J. Gilson, J.S.C. on April 24, 2015.
Prosecutor Knapp stated: “Nothing will ever restore Nazish to her family. As her two young children grow up, they will never have their mother by their side. Her family, and most especially her siblings, will never see her again. This verdict, however, demonstrates to all of her loved ones that justice has been served.”
Prosecutor Knapp would like to specifically thank the members of the Major Crimes Unit of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, as well as the Town of Boonton Police Department, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office – Criminal Investigation Section, and the Billerica (MA) Police Department.
