The Tel Aviv District Court sentenced on Tuesday the killer of Ramat Hasharon real estate lawyer Anat Pliner to 18 years in prison.

The court also ordered the convicted killer pay Pliner's family NIS 200,000 in compensation.

The killer, who cannot be named because he was a minor at the time of the murder, brutally stabbed Pliner at the door of her home in Ramat Hasharon in April 2006.

According to the charge sheet, the youth, then 15, had decided to rob Pliner's house at knife-point because he wanted cash.  When Pliner opened the door, the youth told her he was a neighbor, then demanded she hand over all her money. Frightened, Pliner screamed and the youth stabbed her twice in the stomach with a commando knife.
