Maid sentenced to death for killing baby girl

Nine-month-old Salama died two weeks after being admitted to hospital with severe injuries, which the family blamed on the Asian housemaid

Sharjah: The Indonesian maid convicted for the murder of a baby girl in her Emirati employer’s house will be executed, a court here ruled on Monday.

The Sharjah Sharia Court of First Instance announced the sentence on Monday morning.

The 30-year-old Indonesian was charged with premeditated murder of the nine-month-old Salama at the house of her Emirati sponsor.

The baby, identified as Salama Al Mazmi, was allegedly beaten by the maid.

She was rushed to Al Qasimi Hospital in July 2016 with severe injuries, but she went into coma and died two weeks later.
