The Haifa District Attorney served an indictment in the Haifa District Court on Monday, charging a 25-year-old resident of the northern Beduin town of Basmat Tab'un with murder.

According to the indictment, Rani Zubeidat decided to kill his friend, 29-year-old Nabil Zubeidat, after becoming angry with him.

Allegedly, Rani took a large knife and climbed through a window in Nabil's home. Rani then attacked Nabil as he lay sleeping in his living room, stabbing him five times in his head, abdomen and chest, and slicing open his face, the indictment says.

The prosecution also requested that Rani be remanded in custody for the duration of the legal proceedings against him.
