Kuwaiti woman accused of killing her husband referred for mental checkup

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 4: The Criminal Court has ordered the referral of a 27-year-old Kuwaiti woman, who is accused of killing her husband, in their apartment in Al-Masayel area, to the Psychiatric Hospital to assess her mental state at the time of committing the crime, reports Al-Anba daily.

During the session the court listened to the testimony of the interrogating office while the second accused, who is charged with sheltering the defendant and who was released earlier, failed to attend the session. The attorney for the plaintiff, lawyer Ibrahim Al-Kandari, told the daily he requested the court for a statement from the forensic doctor to explain the injuries mentioned in the forensic report, but did not mention the cause, especially since the perpetrator used a knife and a hammer to commit the crime.

Al-Kandari added that he inspected a large travel bag found inside the victim’s apartment that had traces of blood, and it is likely that the accused had tried to put his body in it after he was killed in preparation for getting rid of it, but that she was unable due to the victim’s height, which prompted her to wrap it with a carpet and put garbage bags on his face.

The defendant was arrested from an animal pen in Kabd area belonging to her relative her after she fled the crime scene. Earlier it was reported that the woman, accused of killing her 31-year-old husband in Al-Masayel in April 2020, Kuwait, gave a shocking confession that she committed the crime alone, but she was accompanied by her boyfriend who stayed in the car and she went to her home and killed the husband with a blow to the head. She not only convinced him in words, but showed him a video clip of the dead husband. The Public Prosecution has charged her with pre-meditated murder and sent her to the Central Prison
