AMMAN (AFP) â€” A teenage woman was jailed for 15 years in Jordan on Wednesday for murdering her parents and two brothers by poisoning their orange juice, a court official said.
Hana al-Shamali, 19, was sentenced to prison and hard labour for the February killings in the city of Irbid, north of the Jordanian capital Amman, the official said on condition of anonymity.
As the sentence was passed, she shouted out, “I swear to you, I didn’t do anything,” the official added.
“The youth, a university student, added poison to orange juice which she served to the family, who had accused her of stealing 30 dinars (42 dollars) from her father.” [source]
â€œHer family searched her room, then her brother dragged her by the hair and hit her on her head and legs,â€ the court added.
The defendant said she decided to take revenge because her family was treating her as a thief, so she mixed juice with a deadly poison her father had brought home to kill stray dogs and offered it to her parents and two brothers.
…The suspectâ€™s 14-year-old sister was the sole survivor because she did not drink the juice. [source]
And this is exactly why I only drink apple juice, people!
