Police arrested a Filipina domestic worker Thursday after she beat her 37-year-old boss to death with a dumbbell, a security source said.
The source told The Daily Star that the maid had first hit her employer, Nathalie Michel Selban, with a flower vase during the domestic squabble in the Metn town of Ain Saadeh, before turning to a dumbbell as her weapon of choice.
The assailant reportedly telephoned Selban’s husband, Aziz Elias Farhat, to tell him that she had killed his wife.
The father had just left the house to drop off their five-year-old daughter to school. The maid left another two-and-a-half year old child unharmed.
