Police on Tuesday arrested an anesthesiologist on suspicion that she, along with her lover, conspired to murder his wife and his ex-wife, both of whom died under mysterious circumstances.

The doctor, a 45-year-old resident of the Sharon region, was arrested by police on Monday night after the YAMAR central investigative unit carried out a lengthy investigation into the death of Jenny Cooper, who passed away on August 21st, 2009. Her lover, Shimon Cooper, was previously married to Orit Coopershnitz, who died on January 1, 1994. Both of Cooper’s former wives died in what were ruled natural deaths.

Police said they are examining whether or not he played a role in the alleged conspiracy.

In the Kfar Saba Magistrate’s court on Tuesday, police presented the state with a request to charge the doctor with premeditated manslaughter and conspiracy to commit a crime, in the case of Jenny Cooper.

The doctor has denied all the charges against her.
