After 28-year-old Sergei Kalasnikov was found dead in Rishon Lezion midday Sunday, his mother claimed that violence had erupted in her household following attempted sexual assault by a tenant, Army Radio reported. The mother was arrested in connection with her son's death after police noticed signs of violence on her face. However, she reportedly stated that the bruises were a result of her struggle with a tenant to whom she had been renting a room in the family's home.
