Netivot resident Yehudah Haddad received a life sentence plus ten years Tuesday for stabbing his wife and murdering her sister two years ago.

In April 2008, Haddad returned home after a restraining order issued against him expired.

Shortly after returning, Haddad stabbed both his wife, Sigalit Bitton-Haddad, and her sister, Mazal Bitton-Galperin with a knife, shouting for them to "die." Both women were stabbed multiple times in the upper body, and Haddad's wife's sister Mazal was killed.
