The Central District Court in Petah Tikva on Sunday sentenced a Nes Ziona resident convicted of stabbing a man to death after an argument to 15 years in prison.

According to the charge sheet, Shlomi Mizrahi stabbed Hai Ben Shimon after Ben Shimon swore at him during a brawl outside Rehovot's Henry club.

Mizrahi went home, but then drove to Ben Shimon's house and stabbed him several times in the chest and abdomen, causing his death.

Mizrahi was initially charged with murder but that charge was reduced to manslaughter following a plea bargain, despite opposition from Ben Shimon's family. He was also ordered to pay NIS 150,000 compensation to the victim's family.
