The Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Adi Benita, who was convicted in February of the 2008 murder of her friend Talia Abramowitz, to 20 years in prison on Thursday.

The sentence struck a balance between the prosecution’s demand for a life sentence and the defense’s request for a lenient 15-year sentence.

Abramowitz was pregnant at the time of the murder.

Benita was also ordered to pay $200,000 in compensation to Abramowitz’s mother and NIS 20,000 to her grandmother.
