A Doha Criminal Court has sentenced a GCC man to death for the premeditated murder of two persons, including the husband of a woman who acted as his accomplice in the crime.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported that the court also sentenced the woman to 22 years in jail after she was convicted of assisting the defendant in plotting the crime and helping him commit it by providing information and photographs of the victims.
The first defendant, who was part of the security team at a local hospital, got introduced to the woman, the second defendant, and the two developed a relationship.
According to the daily, he promised to help the woman get rid of her husband and one of his relatives by tricking them into meeting him in a neighbouring country and killing them there. Accordingly, she supplied him with their phone numbers and photograph through a popular instant messaging service.
After that, the first defendant contacted the duo and told them that he wanted to give them something that had been sent to him by the husband's father. When they arrived at the designated spot - a deserted area - in the neighbouring country, he shot them several times, killing them instantly, the report added.
A police investigation was subsequently carried out and the court eventually convicted the accused.
