Chaudhry Muhammad Shahid made the denial before he appeared in court along with Ms Shahid's first husband, Chaudhry Muhammad Shakeel, who is accused of murder.
Mr Shahid is being held as an accessory to her murder.
Ms Shahid, 28, from Bradford, died in July in northern Punjab.
The BBC has since learnt that Ms Shahid had not obtained a legal divorce before her second marriage.
A final report into her death was due to be presented in court, but the prosecution said it needed more time to examine it.
