A Saudi man who murdered his Indonesian housemaid last month told court he had tortured her for several days before deciding to finish her life, the Saudi Arabic language daily Okaz reported on Monday.
Angered by her maltreatment of his ageing mother, the man beat his maid up and tortured for several days until she could no longer move, it said.
“He told court that he kept her at his house in the hope she will recover from her wounds but she did not…he then threw her out of the house,” the paper said.
“He later followed her and used a metal object to kill her…he then dumped her body in a waste bin.”
Police found the body of the unidentified maid in the bin in the southwestern province of Abha last month and arrested her employer.
His wife has been released on bail but she would stand trial for hiding information on her husband’s torture of the maid.
