Police arrested a 42-year-old Upper Nazareth man who confessed on Thursday to stabbing Svetlana Nusinsky.
A police source told Army Radio that "the murderer was her lover. She was married and had a 17-year-old son, and wanted to end the affair. During an argument, he told her and others that were present 'if she doesn't live with me, she won't live at all.'"
Nusinsky was found dead on Wednesday near the Tzippori industrial area.
