An east Jerusalem man in his 20s was convicted Thursday of the murder, rape and sodomy of his six-year-old cousin. The conviction was made after DNA tests proved his guilt. According to the charge sheet read out in the Jerusalem District Court, the girl went out to a kiosk near her east Jerusalem home in January 2008. Several hours later, her body was found in a pit near a residential building, half-naked with multiple bruises. A postmortem examination found that the girl had been raped, sodomized and strangled.
