The Supreme Court on Thursday overturned a previous acquittal by the Beersheba District Court, ruling to convict Meir Jano and Yisrael Ganon of the 2003 killing of 16-year-old Shaked Shalhov.

In April of last year, following a trial lasting more than five years, the District Court acquitted Jano and Ganon of the murder, ruling that the testimony to police given by the key witness in the case, Yaron Sankar, was unreliable.

Following an appeal by state prosecutors, the Supreme Court Justices ruled that it was a mistake to discount Sankar's testimony. They ruled that Jano and Ganon should be arrested and held, pending sentencing.
