Death for Filipina maid in Kuwait.
Prosecutors charged that the maid, named as Jakatia Mandon Pawa, stabbed the victim several times with a kitchen knife while she was asleep at dawn on May 14 last year in the Al Qurain district, south of Kuwait City.
After killing the daughter, the maid sustained serious injuries after jumping from the second floor of the victim's house and was admitted to the intensive care unit of a hospital for several days, prosecutors said.
Defence lawyers demanded that the maid be examined by psychiatrists to determine her mental health but the court turned down the request.
The verdict must be confirmed by the court of appeals and cassation and then endorsed by Amir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah before it can be carried out.
