The Kiryat Gat Magistrate's Court on Friday afternoon extended by 7 days the remand of two 23-year-old twin brothers from Bnei Ayish suspected of murdering their seven-year-old neighbor Leon Kalantarov.
Kalantarov was reported missing Thursday afternoon, and after a protracted search, his body was eventually found in a house where the twins live.
Neighbors told Channel 10 that the two suspects were well known for sexually abusing youngsters.
Meanwhile, the twins' father said that they were mentally ill and that his repeated pleas to authorities to provide them with professional help had gone unheeded.
