Police announced Tuesday that they arrested a suspect in the murder of Shmuel Siman-Tov, 49 of Jerusalem, who was stabbed to death in Mea Shearim in seven years ago.

The suspect, Mark Shapiro, 35 from Jerusalem, was arrested on December 5.

Siman-Tov was found in a rooftop apartment in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood on August 9, 2004 with dozens of stab wounds to his body. He was rushed to a hospital but died of his wounds within a number of minutes.

Police believe the murder was over a large sum of money that Siman-Tov had in his apartment.

His father, Barch Siman-Tov said of his son, "He was a religious man, a good man. He gave everything to everyone."
