Port Said Criminal Court postponed on Sunday the trial of the raping and murdering of five-year old Zaina Arafa to 26 January for deliberation.
Port Said police had earlier revealed the cause of her death was her fall from the eleventh floor of the building where she lives.
The defendants involved in the trial are the doorman of Zaina’s building and his friend. They are accused of luring the child to the rooftop and raping her in rotation, then throwing her from the building for fear their crime would be discovered.
The forensic report mentioned that the victim suffered from fractures in her skull, limbs, face and neck as a result of a high fall. The report confirmed the girl was sexually assaulted before being thrown.
The public prosecutor's report said an air conditioning on the third floor was partially damaged as a result of the collision of the child's body while falling down.
