The husband of a woman shot dead in an Arab Israeli town last May was
arrested Monday on suspicion of being linked to the murder.

The man, who is serving a prison sentence for another offense, and who was behind bars during the May 28 shooting, is suspected of being linked to the fatal shooting of mother-of-two Nasrin Mushrati, Coastal Police said.

Nasrin Musrati, 26, was found by Magen David Adom paramedics with multiple gunshot wounds on a street in Kafr Yasif, near Acre. The paramedics rushed her by ambulance to the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya, but after failing to revive her, pronounced her dead on the way.

The suspect was brought before Acre Magistrate's Court together with three additional suspects on Monday. The court extended all of the suspects' custody until Thursday.
