Law enforcement on Thursday filed an indictment against Chaim and Ayelet Alon, a couple from Beersheba, on hit and run charges, following their alleged hitting and killing of cyclist Michael Mirilashvili with their car six weeks ago.

The rider died of his wounds.



Chaim is also charged with obstruction of justice.

According to the indictment, the husband hit Mirilashvili, while his wife was riding as a passenger, but drove on without check on him as he died.


Later, it is alleged that Chaim contacted his insurance company and the garage where he was trying to get his car fixed following the accident, telling them both that he had crashed into a camel.
