Man charged with murder of 1st wife and 3rd wife

March 19, 2013 15:03

The Central District Attorney's Office on Tuesday filed a request to amend its indictment against serial con-man Shimon Cooper to add a charge of murdering his first wife to go along with the murder charges regarding his third wife..

The amended indictment, including for the first time definitive charges against Cooper for the murder of Orit Cooperschmit, was filed in the Lod District Court.

A web of lies, scams and a fictional story about a Mossad hit overseas are at the center of the case, initially filed in November.

The new charges arise from additional investigative activities that shed new light on Cooper's alleged method of operation in his murders in general, and regarding his first wife in particular.
