An Abu Dhabi criminal court sentenced a woman to 13 years in prison for torturing her four-year old daughter to death while her husband was ordered jailed for three years.

The woman had confessed to systematically beating her daughter, locking her up in a garbage bin and depriving her of food for a whole day. But she claimed that she was only punishing her for misbehavior.

Neighbours said they were surprised by the crime as they had never known that the couple had a little daughter and thought they had only one son. They said they had seen the couple many times going out with their son but had never seen a girl.

“The woman also confessed that they would leave their daughter at home any time they go out,” Emirat Alyoum daily said.

Doctors had told police the girl’s death was caused by brain hemorrhage due to severe beating by hard objects on the head and other parts of the body.

The husband denied knowledge of torture, saying he was not interfering in the way his wife was dealing with his children. “The father told police he thought his daughter was lean, slim and pale because she might have not been well,” it said.
