The Central District Court in Petah Tikva sentenced a Yavne man to life in prison plus an additional 12 years on Thursday, after finding him guilty of murdering his friend and raping the victim's mother.

Andrei Liushchenko stabbed his friend, known only as S.K., to death in S.K.'s Rishon Lezion apartment in January 2010. He then raped S.K's mother at knife-point, and subjected her to a terrifying and brutal ordeal that lasted a day and a night.

The court also ordered Liushchenko to pay S.K.'s mother NIS 200,000 compensation.
