A prostitute was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly setting a man on fire because he refused to pay her, police in the United Arab Emirates said.
According to reports, a court in Dubai, heard how the maid burned the sleeping man by setting a couch on fire after he refused to pay her.
28-year-old Z.M., denied the charges, saying that she left the house before the fire started. She also said that it was the first time she had sex with a man for money.
She did however, admit to stealing two cellphones and gold jewelry because he had not paid her.
According to the police investigation, two women were seen on surveillance video entering the house where the incident occurred.
Around 4:00 p.m., the victim and two other men entered the house, and an hour later, two women entered the house.
The two men told investigators that after having sex with the women, they left the house and left the victim behind with the suspect.
Surveillance video shows the suspect leaving the house just a few minutes before the fire alarm went off.
