Teen held for torturing maid to death in Kuwait
A 15-year-old Kuwaiti boy used a large stick to torture his Ethiopian housemaid to death before he was arrested by the police, a newspaper reported on Monday.
The boy’s mother had told police the maid had been beaten up by unknown assailants during her weekend but her claims were not convincing, Al Watan said.
Doctors examining the body told police that a large stick had been used to kill the maid, prompting them to question the boy.
“Police did not believe the boy’s mother who tried to cover for the murder he had committed…during interrogation, the boy confessed to killing the maid.”
