    An Activist of the Awami Workers Party chants slogans during a demonstration in Islamabad, Pakistan, on July 18, 2016. Nearly 1,000 women are murdered in Pakistan each year for violating conservative norms on love, marriage and public behavior. The so-called "honor killings" are often carried out by family members.

    The ex-husband of a British woman whose death is being investigated as a suspected "honor killing" turned himself in to Pakistani police for questioning on Thursday, NBC News has learned.

    Samia Shahid, 28, had been visiting her estranged parents in northeastern Pakistan when she died. Her former husband had been on the run since the afternoon of her death but gave himself up to police in eastern Pakistan, according to the officer leading the investigation.

    Shahid 's second husband had claimed she was murdered because of their marriage, which he told police was against her family's wishes.

    The death has become a high-profile investigation in Pakistan.
