A Saudi woman confessed to have murdered her husband more than 2 months after he died in a fire at his house in the Gulf Kingdom.
She confesses she killed him after a heated argument at their house in the western town of Taif.
Police had decided that the fire was an accident according to family statements before they reopened the case following a report by the civil defense that the bedroom’s door was locked from outside.
The man had succeeded in breaking his bedroom door and escaping the blaze but he returned to the room to die after forgetting his car key.
“She told investigators that she set the bedroom on fire by burning furniture items near the door…she said that her husband finally succeeded in breaking the door and leaving the room but he returned to get his car key…she said that he died after the room’s roof fell on him,” the Arabic daily said.
