The 21-year-old Bahraini brutally assaulted and strangled his Ethiopian housemaid when she refused to strip for him.


The defendant is accused of murdering the 28-year-old Ethiopian woman in his bedroom because she refused to take off her clothes on February 29.

Prosecutors say when she refused, he smashed her head against the bed's metal headboard and then strangled her with his bare hands.
