April 23, 2013 18:22

An argument over a few thousand shekels for a used car was enough for a Bat Yam man to stab his brother to death Tuesday morning, police said.

The victim, Albert Ben-Sheetrit, 53 was stabbed by his brother across his upper and lower body outside the mini-market he owned, after the two began fighting over the price Ben-Sheetrit was asking for the car, Yarkon police sub-district commander Yehuda Dahan said Tuesday, adding that the price was a few thousand shekels. 

Police received a call from Magen David Adom paramedics at 7:30 on Tuesday morning, and deployed large numbers of YASSAM special patrol officers to comb the area of northern Bat Yam for the killer. They eventually found the killer hiding in a nearby apartment.
