An elderly woman who was choked to death in her Jaffa home in 2010 was murdered by a Palestinian man with the assistance of his divorcee in order to steal money for rent, police in Tel Aviv said Sunday.

Shoshana Levi, 78, was found bound and without vital life signs in her home by paramedics.

Subsequent examinations found that her attackers had shoved cloths and a tennis ball into her mouth, leading to asphyxiation.

The investigation was led by the elite central unit of Tel Aviv district police, which gathered DNA and forensic evidence from the murder scene.
