Police in Al-Kharj arrested an Arab woman and her alleged accomplice Saturday for the murder of her husband in Alkhobar earlier in the day.
Col. Fawaz Al-Maiman, a spokesman for Riyadh police, confirmed the incident to Arab News.
An Asian national reportedly called Alkhobar police to express his fears there could be a corpse inside a large leather bag in a dumpster.
Police went to the site and examined the body. Investigations revealed the victim was married to a 30-year-old woman, believed to be a Yemeni national, and that she allegedly killed him with the help of a 23-year-old Saudi man.
The victim was a 31-year-old Saudi national. He married the woman last year.
Authorities determined that the cause of death was due to various wounds that were the result of a physical attack.
The woman and her alleged accomplice were traced to the town of Al-Afjah in Al-Kharj, and arrested.
