A 32-year-old woman found dead in her Petah Tikva home last week beside flowers and a love note addressed to her was murdered by her boyfriend, police announced on Wednesday, following the lifting of a media ban.

The murder suspect, 46- year-old Vitali Michaelov, said he stabbed the woman to death with a kitchen knife after she informed of him of an affair. He left the body in the home and fled to his work place, a glazing workshop.

After five days, Michaelov called police and told them he had murdered the woman, informing the officers where to find the body. He became infuriated after officers failed to arrive at the address, and called again the following day, a Kfar Saba Magistrate’s Court heard.

Police set up an inquiry to examine why two phone calls were required for a patrol car to be dispatched to the address.

Liran Friedland, the suspect’s attorney, said her client was romantically involved for half a year, and had lost control after hearing of the affair.

The court extended his custody by a week.
