Daniel Maoz, a 28-year-old lawyer accused of murdering his parents last August, will undergo psychiatric testing on Monday after the judges hearing his case in the Jerusalem District Court requested a psychiatric evaluation.

Maoz’s lawyer, David Barhoom, said his client was not opposed to the psychiatric testing. Police accuse Maoz of stabbing his parents Nurit and Noah Maoz to death in their home in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot on August 11 with a kitchen knife in an attempt to get an inheritance to pay off massive gambling debts. Maoz was arrested a month after the murders, but in a surprising move, accused his twin brother Nir of carrying out the murders. The identical twins share DNA, which was found at the site of the murder.
