A magistrate's court judge committed suicide at his home in central Israel on Tuesday.

Police said he left a suicide note at the scene which read that  the pressure and workload from his position led him to take his own life.


The judge was discovered by family members after apparently suffocating himself by tying a plastic bag around his head.
