Ethiopian maid kills sponsor’s minor girl

RIYADH – A 26-year-old Ethiopian maid confessed to killing her sponsor’s six-year-old daughter inside the family home by slitting her throat with a meat cleaver, according to Riyadh Police spokesman Col. Nasser Al-Qahtani.

The gruesome murder took place Sunday evening when the family noticed that their daughter and the Ethiopian maid had disappeared.

The family reported the incident to the police. While conducting a search of the premises, police officers found the slain girl inside the bathroom in a pool of blood while the maid was found hiding inside a storage room with a cleaver in her hand. She tried to attack police officers with the cleaver but surrendered a few minutes later.

She admitted to the crime and said she got sick and tired of the way the family had been treating her and decided to exact revenge on them by killing the girl. The case has been referred to the Bureau of Investigation and Prosecution.
