This story is only interesting because the koran was used so directly as a weapon to kill people instead of just a directive. Sort of like killing someone by beating them to death with the manual for an AK47.

“I didn’t want to kill him, I wanted to save him,” the 28-year-old woman said during a hearing on Tuesday at the Halmstad District Court, according to the Aftonbladet newspaper.
The incident occurred in late July, when the woman met her husband at his workplace, where she told him she wasn’t feeling well.
“I told her that we couldn’t speak there, and that we could discuss it at home,” the husband said in court, according to the Expressen paper.
“At the same time, I suggested she could read passages from the Koran for support, as we’re both Muslims.”
