SYDNEY - A Sydney man accused of killing his mother's lover in a bid to protect his family's honor has been convicted of murder.

A New South Wales state Supreme Court jury found Andrew Iskandar guilty on Monday of the 2010 slaying of Mohd Shah Saemin.

Prosecutors say Iskandar fatally beat Saemin with a hammer because Saemin was having an affair with Iskandar's mother. Prosecutors say Iskandar felt the affair had brought dishonor to his family.

Iskandar said he acted in self-defense.


Iskandar's mother, Indonesian-born Nita Iskandar, is a Malaysian consulate worker. She has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory for allegedly helping her son flee to Singapore after the killing.

Andrew Iskandar faces a sentence of up to life in prison.
