Man Viciously Murders 5-Year-Old, Claims She's Not A Virgin - You Won't Believe His Punishment

A Muslim TV preacher will walk free after murdering his five-year-old daughter. The court in Saudi Arabia dropped charges from 'murder' to 'excessive discipline.'

Fayhan Al Ghamdi, a celebrity self-proclaimed Muslim preacher in Saudi Arabia, killed his five-year-old daughter Luma for being too flirtatious. He suspected the child was not a virgin.

Luma's mother divorced Ghamdi because of his violent streak, but the young child would visit her father and his current wife. Reports say her father and stepfather beat her with iron rods and wires. She was raped and beaten with a cane. She was in a coma for 8 months before she passed away.

Punishment for such crimes for a man of Ghamdi's station are rare in Saudi Arabia, but when there was an uproar over the story Ghamdi was charged with manslaughter, among other things. Under Saudi law, Luma's mother was entitled to accept blood money in lieu of asking for the death penalty, so the mother took $1 million and he was able to escape the death penalty. He was sentenced to eight years and 800 lashes.

His current wife received 10 months and 150 lashes for not reporting the crime.

The Saudi court has now dropped the charges, including the charge of manslaughter and sexual assault. The only charge remaining was that of 'excessive disciplining that resulted in death.'

Ghamdi's attorney says his client plans to sue the media for false reporting and tarnishing his reputation.
