An Asian expat, who killed his friend when he was drunk, has been sentenced to 15 years in jail in Ras Al Khaimah. The emirate’s criminal court also ordered that he be deported after serving his time.

The defendant and the victim were drinking together on the day of the incident, hanging out at an air-conditioned building and both sitting on a ladder, according to a report by Arabic daily Al Bayan.

After having drinks, the victim unconsciously urinated on the accused — making the latter go berserk. The defendant pushed his friend off the ladder and beat him up. He then grabbed his head and smashed it into a wall repeatedly until he died, according to the report.

The accused then fled the scene. A staff member who works in the building discovered the victim’s remains and immediately reported it to the authorities. The murderer was identified through a CCTV footage, leading to his arrest.
