RIYADH — The General Court has sentenced to death an Ethiopian housekeeper who admitted murdering a child.

She killed her victim, Lamees Al-Salman, last May in a murder that shocked the country.

The child’s father said the housekeeper has repeatedly admitted to killing his daughter.

The maid had also admitted to the crime during the investigation conducted by the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution (BIP).

The maid was informed of the sentence by a translator, but did not show any emotion and the judge granted her a month to appeal the sentence.

If the court does not receive an appeal within this time, the sentence becomes final.

The father said he was satisfied with the sentence, adding it would help in relieving his family’s pain.
