Man Kills Pinay Maid While Stealing from Sponsor’s Villa

The man claimed that he only intended to make the victim “unconscious” so he could steal items from the villa, Khaleej Times reported. After hitting her with a metallic piece, however, she began to bleed heavily and he panicked. The family’s pet dog had also been beaten badly.

According to the police captain who made the arrest, the man had earlier confessed to entering the villa to look for valuable items that he could steal. He used to work there as a gardener, so he was familiar with the place. The man entered the premises through an opening in the fence. He claimed that he did not intend to kill the Filipina housemaid.

Meanwhile, another police captain shared that during interrogation, the man admitted to hitting the victim on the head with the intention to kill her. He was worried that she recognised his face, so he struck her from behind.

The forensic doctor reported that the victim had multiple head injuries and defensive wounds on her hands. He noted that the murder tool could have been a heavy driller, one that is used in garden landscaping.

As for the owner of the villa — a 59-year-old Tanzanian manager — he stated that he was with his wife at a hotel during the time of the incident.

The man has been arrested and charged with trespassing, aggravated assault of a pet, attempted armed robbery, and murder. He has denied all these charges at the Dubai Court of First Instance, and a sentence is set to be released on August 18.
