Couple sentenced to death for killing maid

By Staff

An Abu Dhabi court sentenced a man and his wife to death after they were convicted of beating her to death and pouring acid on the body so the police would not identify her, newspapers reported on Wednesday.

The couple, who were arrested a few days after the murder, at first denied committing the crime but confessed during interrogation later.

They told police that they beat the maid to death after an argument and that they dumped her body in a remote area in the desert.

The man also said they splashed her body with acid so it could not be identified, according to the papers, which did not identify the couple and the maid.
