For the second time in less than a week, a man in central Israel murdered his wife in front of his children, before calling police to report the crime.
Tel Aviv police said Thursday that at around 3am they received a call from a man who told the operator that he had just murdered his wife, and to send officers to their home on Mivtza Sinai street in Bat Yam. When police arrived they found the woman lying stabbed to death on the floor of the apartment.
Inside the apartment were the couple’s two children – aged 10 and 4 – who were taken into the custody of social workers. Both were at home during the murder and police suspect may have witnessed it.
