A Petah Tikva man was indicted Sunday in the Tel Aviv District Court on suspicion of trying to kill his girlfriend while he was drunk. 30-year-old Constance Buchkarinov allegedly locked his partner in a room, stabbed her in the neck with a kitchen knife and attempted to break her spine by slamming her head against the wall. When he didn't succeed, the 30-year-old allegedly poured petrol over his girlfriend and set her ablaze. The woman was seriously wounded. Buchkarinov confessed to the charges and reenacted the incident. He was sent for a psychiatric examination.
