KUWAIT CITY, Nov 24: The Court of Appeals has ordered to refer a Kuwaiti citizen to psychiatry to examine the level of his mental soundness. Earlier, the Criminal Court had sentenced them to death the citizen after convicting him of killing his mother-in-law and attempting to end the life of her daughter (his wife) using a firearm (Kalashnikov) in Wafra, after his wife left him and refused to stay with him due to family problems. The case boils down to a report received by the Ministry of Interior’s Control Room from the citizen’s wife stating that her mother was shot dead while they were driving in their vehicle on Wafra Road. When the security personnel arrived, they found her covered in blood inside the vehicle and the front and rear windows of the car shattered by gunfire.

The suspect was arrested after an informant confirmed that her husband was the one who committed the crime. He was referred to the Public Prosecution on charges of premeditated murder, and possession of a firearm and ammunition without a license. The security officers were able to find the accused’s vehicle in Wafra, and the weapon that was used to carry out the crime was found buried in the area. The suspect claimed that the Kalashnikov was a remnant of the Iraqi invasion, and he had kept it with him from the time he found it. He explained that he committed the crime due to family disputes that resulted in his wife leaving the marital home and not wanting to return to it. He spotted her and her mother in Sabah Al-Ahmad City and followed their vehicle until he opened heavy fire on her on Wafra Road, but she miraculously survived while her mother succumbed to the gunshot injuries.
