2020-11-12 | Since 2 Month
A three-year-old girl has been burnt to death in Egypt's Dakahlia Governorate by a neighbour who kidnapped her to steal her gold earrings.
Muhammad K.L. and his wife lured the girl to the roof of their house, strangled her and then stole her gold earrings, according to Watan.
He took her body home where it stayed for three days before setting it on fire to try and conceal her identity and then threw her into a construction site where she was later found by other children playing nearby.
According to Al-Arabiya, Muhammad said he killed Jana Salah due to his poor financial situation. He needed the money from the sale of her earrings so he could pay for his wife, who is pregnant, to deliver their baby.
Both Muhammad and his wife were imprisoned yesterday for four days while investigations are carried out related to the kidnapping, thieft and murder of Jana.
Al-Arabiya reported that Muhammad had confessed to the crimes and said he was needed money to provide for his children.
