The Jerusalem District Attorney filed an indictment in the district court on Thursday, charging a 40-year-old man with the 2003 murder of Oleg Aniskovich.

According to the indictment, Vladimir  Kochriavi committed the murder hours after his pregnant wife told him she wanted a divorce. Allegedly, Kochriavi later drank vodka with several people, among them Aniskovich, in Jerusalem's Rivlin street.

Kochriavi stabbed Aniskovich 22 times in a violent fight that broke out after Aniskovich called Kochriavi's wife a 'whore' and insulted his mother, the indictment says. Kochriavi allegedly cleaned up the murder scene and disposed of the weapon. Aniskovich died at the scene.
