Daniel Maoz on Monday admitted to having a severe gambling addiction, but rejected the accusation that he murdered his parents Nurit and Noah Maoz in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem last August.

Daniel was arrested less than a month after the murders after police noticed a number of suspicious behaviors, including the night of the murders when Daniel showed up at a friend's apartment disheveled, nervous, and covered with splatters of blood.
