The High Court accepted a petition by Yehie Turk, accused of the murder of toddler Aviv Illouz in 1999, and ordered state prosecutors to honor the plea bargain signed with him.

According to the plea agreement, signed 5 months ago, Turk would not be convicted of murder and would be sentenced to 15 years in prison.
