AMMAN — Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and south Amman Public Security Department (PSD) personnel have arrested two suspects involved in the murder of a woman who was in her 60s, a PSD statement said on Friday. 

The south Amman police directorate on March 30 received a report that a woman’s body was in front of her apartment’s entrance in the 7th Circle area.

Forensic examination at the scene led to the conclusion that the woman died as a result of multiple stabs.

Evidence collected from the crime scene led to suspecting one of the woman’s relatives, who was arrested and upon investigation confessed to committing the murder with a juvenile accomplice, who was also arrested, to steal the victim’s money. 

The suspect said they waited for her until she arrived in front of her apartment, killed her, left her at her doorstep and ran away with the money they stole. 

The CID and police personnel also confiscated the murder weapon as well as JD37,000 and $1,900 stolen from the victim. 


The case was referred to the prosecutor general after completing investigations.
