Jordan- Rapist who killed Syrian child receives death penalty
(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency)
Amman, Oct. 17 (Petra) -- The Grand Criminal Court on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for raping and murdering a 7-year-old Syrian child in Amman in July.
The jury said the defendant's confession and the technical evidence submitted during the trial proceedings were sufficient to convict the defendant and hand him the death penalty by hanging.
The convict was charged with murder in accordance with article 2/328 of the Penal Code.
Back in July, the rapist took the child away to an abandoned house in Amman's Jabal Al Nuzha district, sexually assaulted him and took his life in a gruesome crime, which stirred a furious public reaction. He was arrested shortly after leaving the house.
