A drunk Asian worker stabbed to death his 23-year-old roommate in their labour accommodation in Al Jarf area. Ajman Criminal Court started trial of the 22-year-old accused on Sunday.
According to police and public prosecution investigation report, the accused and the victim worked for a cleaning company based in Ajman. While having alcohol in their room, they got involved in a heated argument which led to a scuffle. The workers in the neighbouring accommodations tried to intervene to end the fight, though they did not know the cause behind the commotion.
The witnesses said that both the men were heavily drunk. After the fight broke out, the accused went into the kitchen, brought a knife and stabbed the victim. The workers found the victim lying in a pool of blood on the floor. He died after a few minutes. The workers called the police who rushed to the scene and shifted the victim to forensic laboratory. They arrested the accused who failed to flee from the crime scene.
The defendant admitted in the public prosecution's investigation that he had deliberately killed the victim by stabbing him in his abdomen with a knife until he fell to the ground and admitted to drinking alcohol the same day.
The forensic report issued after the examination of blood samples of the victim showed presence of alcohol was 221 milligrams/100 milligrams, which indicates that the deceased was drunk before his death. It also indicated that his death was caused by stabbing, which caused a tear in the internal organs and led to his instant death.
Based on the investigations and the confessions of the accused, the public prosecutor has charged the offender with first-degree murder.
