Ethiopian maid wanted in girl’s murder ‘dies’ in police custody
KUWAIT CITY, March 4: The Ethiopian maid who allegedly murdered a young Kuwaiti woman in her sleep in Andalus on Feb 10, 2016, died inside a police patrol car last evening while she was being driven back to the Central Prison after interrogations with the Public Prosecution, reports Al-Rai daily.
When the vehicle arrived at the gate of the prison, one of the guards saw the woman slumped on the seat of the vehicle and she was rushed to the Farwaniya Hospital in an ambulance. She was declared dead upon arrival. Initial reports show she died a natural death.
However, her remains have been referred to Forensics. The suspect after killing the woman who was in her 20s had allegedly tried to end her life by stabbing herself in the neck and was rushed to the intensive care unit of the Al-Sabah Hospital where she again tried in vain to end her life several times. The woman was taken to the Central Prison four days ago and had reportedly told the Public Prosecutor earlier that she had committed the crime for no reason.
