Trial begins for Maoz, charged with murdering parents

March 7, 2012 10:50

The trial of Daniel Moaz, the man charged with murdering his two parents in Jerusalem's Ramot neighborhood, began Wednesday morning at the Jerusalem District Court.

Tamar Maoz, sister of the accused, was due to testify against him. Upon arrival at the court she said,"we came here to do justice for our parents." Daniel's twin brother Nir was also set to testify later in the trial.

An indictment filed in September in the Jerusalem District Court describes how Maoz researched how to murder his parents on the Internet, with the goal of obtaining inheritance money to pay off massive gambling debts.

As well as the two counts of murder, 28-year-old Maoz is also charged with cleaning up the crime scene to destroy evidence against him.
