PSD said upon receiving fresh information on the crime, police arrested the brothers who allegedly plotted and murdered their sister.

PSD said its probe showed that the brothers did not report their sister missing, which led acquaintances to believe that the victim was out of the country. But when police followed up on the sister’s whereabouts, officers came to learn that she did not leave Jordan, but that there was no trace of her either, a PSD spokesperson said.

Police reopened the investigation, questioning the suspects, who confessed to strangling their sister and loading her body onto a vehicle, dumping it in the Kasarat area in Madaba governorate.

Search is underway to uncover the woman’s remains, the spokesperson added, noting that the case will soon be referred to the Criminal Court.
