State indicts alleged gay pride parade stabber Schlissel for murder

The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office on Monday filed an indictment with the Jerusalem District Court against Yishai Schlissel for murder, 6 counts of attempted murder, and for causing other injuries in the July stabbing attack the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade.

The stabbings horrified the country, garnered rare across-the-board condemnation from even major orthodox religious figures and drew international attention due to its ferocity and the footage of the attacks.

Schlissel, who was previously imprisoned for 10 years for stabbing three people at the 2005 Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, was arrested in the midst of a stabbing rampage at the parade, just three weeks after being released from jail, killing 16-year-old Shira Banki and wounding five others.
