The Grand Criminal Court has sentenced the Filipino housemaid, who had killed a Filipino fellow, to 20 years of temporary hard labor, after she was charged with murder in preparation to commit theft.
According to the indictment, the Filipino housemaid killed the victim earlier in August 2019, after arguing over JD 100 in the deceased’s home in Jabal ِAmman.
The killer had gone to the victim’s house in hopes of borrowing JD 100. However, following a dispute over the money, the housemaid grabbed a kitchen knife and ended the elderly woman’s life.
The housemaid had confessed to her crime after being handed in to the police by the Philippine Embassy in Amman.
The housemaid had sought refuge at the embassy, and, at the time, told embassy personnel that the deceased’s husband was responsible for killing her.
