Farkhanda Younis, 30, known to friends as ‘Jabeen’, was killed in a ‘ferocious’ attack at her home in Chadderton, Oldham, in the early hours of April 19 last year.
Her body was found after her six-year-old son, who cannot be named for legal reasons, rang 999 because he couldn’t rouse her and her bedroom door was locked.
Jahangir Nazar, 35, who married Ms Younis in an Islamic ceremony in 2012, has admitted manslaughter but denies murder in a Manchester Crown Court trial, claiming his responsibility was diminished by mental illness
Detectives believe some of the bars are acting as a ‘magnets’ for paedophiles who are recruiting children using social media sites.
Rusholme businesses and residents alerted councillors last summer to suspicions that paedophiles were using some cafes to groom children.

At least two police operations, in south Manchester and Oldham , are now currently targeting the Middle Eastern-style bars as part of a wider crackdown.
Passenger planes could soon be equipped with Star Wars-style lasers which would shoot down a terrorist’s missiles.
Israel’s Ministry of Defence has announced that the SkyShield system developed by defence contractor Elbit Systems had successfully completed tests and has been certified for commercial use.
SkyShield uses laser technology and a thermal camera to deflect incoming missiles – after a threat is detected it fires a laser to disrupt the missile’s navigation system, taking it off course and detonating a safe distance from the aircraft.
