The central unit of the Negev District Police have unraveled the mystery surrounding the murder of the couple Moshe Ichiayiv and Veronika Kav who were shot in bed around six months ago, Israel Radio reported Thursday. A state witness identified and brought about the capture of the two suspects in the murder, the nine that helped in carrying out the crime.

The murder came about at the request of a prisoner in the Eshel Prison, who ordered Ichiayiv's after he insulted a crime lord from a crime ring in the south. Each of the assassins received NIS 1,000. Chief superintendent David Douani said that the hired assassins had not planned on killing Veronika Kav, but shot her after she recognized their faces.
