May Vecina (a Philippine) guilty of killing her employer's 7-year-old son. In addition, she was charged with attempting to kill the victim's 13-year-old brother and 17-year-old sister. Vecina claimed, however, that she was physically and mentally abused by her employer. She was sentenced to death. Last year, Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah commuted the death sentence to life imprisonment. It is now announced that Vecina has been pardoned and will be released "soon."
