Twenty-year-old Vodja Milnik from Rishon Letzion was charged on Thursday at the Petah Tikva District Court with the killing of IDF Sgt. Uri Chen in a brawl that took place at the Haviv School in Rishon Letzion three weeks ago. Milnik, who allegedly stabbed Chen to death, was not charged with murder but rather with manslaughter. The state explained that the lesser charge was decided upon since "the circumstances surrounding the incident cannot prove that the defendant actually planned the stabbing. Though he denies any wrongdoing, there is irrefutable evidence that ties him to the scene."
