Judges in the Haifa District Court sentenced a minor to 20 years in prison for murder on Sunday, a year after he shot and killed a kiosk owner during a robbery.

The defendant, who was 17 years and 11 months old when he shot dead store worker Riad Kial last December, admitted the charges against him in October - after the murder trial was already underway. The defendant's name cannot be published because he was a minor at the time of the offense.

Judges Yosef Elron, Menahem Raniel and Moshe Gilad also sentenced the defendant to four years imprisonment for robbery, two years of which will run concurrently with his 20 year murder sentence.
