The main suspect in the murder of Arab teenager Muhammad Abu Dhara Joseph Ben-David will be forcibly hospitalized in a psychiatric clinic for supplementary examination for sanity.
We will remind that earlier, according to the results at the insistence of the prosecution psychiatric examination Ben-David was declared sane.
However, the day before sentencing attorney Ben David presented the results of an independent examination, according to which the latter is insane and cannot be held responsible for their actions.
Ultimately, the court ordered an additional examination.
6-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir was killed on 2 July 2014. His murder was committed in retaliation for the killing by terrorists of Hamas by the Israelis Naftali Frenkel, Gilad Shaera and he ifrah. Police later detained three suspects in murder of Arab teen. The trial began in September 2014.
