Kuwaiti woman gets death for maid murder

Very sad to say, but this is a historic day for Kuwait and this region as a whole. May others follow through.

Kuwait City: Kuwait’s supreme court upheld Monday a death sentence against a woman for murdering her Filipina maid after torturing her, and confirmed a 10-year sentence on her disabled husband.

The ruling is final and cannot be challenged but could be commuted to a life term by the ruler of the Gulf state. Executions in Kuwait are carried out by hanging.

The Kuwaiti woman was convicted of premeditated murder based on evidence that she had regularly tortured her maid before driving over her in a remote desert area.

The husband was handed the jail term for “assisting her,” according to a copy of the ruling.
