Soraya Manutchehri (c.1951—August 15, 1986) was a 35-year-old woman who was stoned to death in the small village of Kuhpayeh, Iran, after being allegedly convicted of adultery. Unnamed witnesses have claimed that her husband, Ghorban-Ali, a prison guard with a petty criminal past, was eager to get rid of her in order to marry a 14-year-old girl. Not wanting to support two families, nor return Soraya's dowry, he therefore spread false rumors of her adultery.
