The highest court in the Maldives has overturned the stoning sentence of a woman found guilty of adultery.
The mother of five confessed to giving birth to a child out of wedlock. She was sentenced to death by stoning Sunday.
But the country's Supreme Court annulled the lower court's decision later that day, claiming it did not follow the proper legal procedures.
