The authorities added, “The process of revealing this crime came after the case was referred by the investigative judge to the Federal Intelligence and Investigation Agency, which in turn intensified its intelligence effort and in-depth investigation with the victim's wife and two sons.”

The post continued: “After confronting them with the evidence, they confessed to killing the victim while he was sleeping, with a GC rifle, by shooting him in the head and then taking him to the back of the house, pouring kerosene, and setting the body on fire until it was charred.”

The Security Media Cell attributed the crime to "major family problems between them that led to the agreement of the wife and her two children to execute the heinous crime."

The authorities concluded, “The weapon used in the crime was seized and their statements were recorded with confession and evidence was revealed and came in conformity with the confessions, so the investigating judge decided to arrest them in accordance with the provisions of Article (406 of the Penal Code) and refer them to the judiciary to receive their punishment.”
