The suspect, who will be under house arrest for an additional three days, has been cooperating with authorities, and Judge Yitzhak Shimoni has already determined that he does not pose a risk.

Abigail and Yael Gross were laid to rest Thursday afternoon, while their brothers, Michael, 7, and Yitzhak, 5, continue to fight for their lives. They are listed in critical condition.

The suspect, who has no prior convictions, was transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where he gave doctors information about the toxic material he used in the apartment in hopes it can help them treat the young boys more effectively.
