An 83-year-old Netanya man was arrested on Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of stabbing his 75-year-old wife to death in their apartment in the city.

At mid-day on Wednesday the couple's son-in-law came by to visit them and found Roza Tzernmoritz in critical condition with several stab wounds. The man called the victim's son and the two then contacted police.Paramedics who arrived at the scene tried to revive Tzernmoritz, but she succumbed to her wounds.

The husband was also at the apartment at the time and made no attempt to run or resist arrest, police said.

The Sharon sub-district police said Wednesday they believe the incident happened after a fight broke out between the couple over money issues. They added that the couple had no history of domestic violence.

The suspect, whose name has still not been released for publication, will be brought for a remand extension at the Netanyah Magistrate's Court on Thursday morning.
