Investigations revealed that the woman who died in a house fire in Amman earlier Tuesday turned out to be murdered by a man who had set the house on fire.

According to the media spokesperson for the Public Security Directorate (PSD), there was a criminal suspicion that she was strangled to death, noting that an investigation team followed up on the case and managed within hours to identify a suspect and arrest him.

The perpetrator confessed to killing the victim following a dispute between them. To cover his crime, the perpetrator decided to set the house on fire.

The perpetrator will be referred to the Public Prosecutor of the Grand Criminal Court.
