The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) have unraveled the circumstances of a woman, whose mother reported missing more than a week ag

The Public Security Department (PSD) said a man lodged a report on July 28th that his wife went missing in the Queissmeh area, eastern Amman.

Following extensive investigations and a search campaign, officers suspected foul play was involved. The husband confessed to killing his wife by strangling after a heated argument. He told the investigators that he had placed the body in a plastic barrel and sealed it with cement before dumping it in a nearby area, spokesman for the PSD said.

Police located the barrel containing the body and referred the culprit to the Public prosecutor of the Grand Criminal Court, who decided to detain him for 15 days at a correctional and rehabilitation centre on charge of wilful murder.
