Jordanian police on Wednesday announced the arrest of a 29-year-old man who reportedly confessed to the killing of another 31 year-old man late last month, reported the Jordan Times.
According to a police report, Youssef Bolose, the alleged murderer, and Rifat Tanius, the victim, both Egyptian, worked as guards in two separate buildings and had an argument over money, which later developed into a fight.
"The suspect confessed that on July 27th he pushed his victim while arguing over money, knocking him down on the ground, instantly killing him," said the report.
Police said Bolose concealed the body in a box and transferred it to a construction sight where he partially buried it.
Following a resident's discovery of the body, police began an investigation into the identity of the victim, said the report.
The identity of the victim was revealed the next day.
The report added that eyewitnesses identified Bolose as a possible suspect, said the daily.
After confronting Bolose with evidence found in his residence, he collapsed and confessed to his crime, said the report - Albawaba.com
