crime-scene-picKUWAIT: Following up on the murder of a Kuwaiti woman and her Saudi mother in Egypt, the suspected murderer, who abducted after promising to buy them a farm in upper Egypt and killed them there to take the cash they had, seemed absentminded during an interview with Kuwait local daily Al-Rai. The suspect, Abdul Tawwab, stressed that he knew he was going to be hanged and that he was in deep remorse, expressing his apologies to his victims’ family members.

“I regret committing such a terrible crime. I would have never imagined I would kill the woman I once worked for and who used to care for me,” he said in tears, but justified killing the daughter in self-defence as she tried to attack him with a knife. He added that he did not kill the mother and she only slipped and fell into the well. “I cannot sleep anymore – the daughter is haunting me in my dreams”, he added.
