The police were called on Sunday evening after the Saudi girl and the house help went missing, reported Sabq.
The police searched in and around the house and found the lifeless body of the child in a bathroom. The child was lying in a pool of her own blood with her throat slit. A sharp object, most likely the weapon used, was also found next to the body.
The maid, 26, was eventually found in a storeroom near the house. She said she committed the crime because she could no longer bear the ill-treatment from her employers. This horrific murder has shaken the entire kingdom.
