Couple to be executed over killing housemaid in Kuwait



(MENAFN) A Kuwaiti court sentenced a Lebanese man and his Syrian wife to hang for killing a Filipina housemaid, a case that triggered a diplomatic spat between the Philippines and Kuwait.

The couple were convicted in their absence of "murdering the Filipina maid and placing her corpse in the freezer," the Al Qabas newspaper reported on Sunday.

In February, the body of Joanna Daniela Demafelis was found stuffed in a freezer in the couple's flat in Hawally, a residential area of Kuwait with a large expatriate population.
