It was gathered she strangled the 85-year-old woman to death, before carting away her jewelry at her residence in GRA Benin city.
In her confession she said: I killed mama to carry her money. She did not offend me. While she was sleeping on her bed, around 12:01 a.m. on December 2, 2021, I used a stool to hit her on the head and she was shouting for help but only the gateman was around and he did not hear the shout. Mama later died.
I waited till 4 a.m. before leaving the house with her N100,000, wristwatch and jewellery. I escaped to Cross River State, but I was later arrested by the police.
The court sentenced Dominion to death by hanging for murder and robbery with violence while she bagged life imprisonment for count two which was for applying harmful substances to the late Madam Igbinedion.
