Police are due to petition a Jerusalem court for permission to conduct an autopsy on the four children who were found dead along with their mother in a Jerusalem apartment fire Sunday night.

The father, who was not at home at the time, had initially not allowed the autopsy to go forward and therefore the court approval was needed, according to Israeli media.

Police were investigation the circumstances behind the tragic incident. The case was allegedly shrouded in suspicions that the mother had killed her four daughters in a murder-suicide.
