German citizen Valentine Schwatze was indicted for the murder of 62-year-old Rachel Jano in Tel Aviv last month.

Schwartze entered Israel as a tourist and remained in the country illegally under the assumed name of Daniel.

Schwartze met Jano, the owner of a flower shop on Ibn Gvirol Street in Tel Aviv, and attempted to steal NIS 5000 from her bag while fixing her air conditioner at her home. Schwartzer allegedly choked Jano to death when she found him stealing her money.
