The crime came hours after a Jordanian man was arrested in the governorate of Irbid, north of Amman, for beating his two daughters to death then burying them.

Last month, a Jordanian woman was shot dead on the campus of a private university in Amman. The perpetrator, who managed to flee the scene, later shot himself dead after police located him and tried to arrest him.
