Teenage twin sister murder suspects undergoing psychiatric exams

March 30, 2016 22:55

The teenage suspects in a brutal murder – including the twin sister of the victim - are currently undergoing psychiatric examination to see if they are fit to stand trial, their attorneys said in court in Tel Aviv Wednesday.

The hearing for David Eran and Shiri Sobol was held almost two weeks after they were both indicted for the murder of Hili Sobol, who prosecutors say was stabbed by Eran 130 times while Shiri watched from the doorway of the family apartment in Tel Aviv.

David Eran’s lawyer Sasi Gez said that his client is undergoing psychiatric examination at Abarbanel Hospital in order to see if he is fit to stand trial, while Sobol’s attorney Gil Friedman said he is also awaiting the psychiatric results and added that he believes that she is not linked to the crime whatsoever.
