Police will ask a court on Sunday morning to order an autopsy on the body of three-year-old Noa Goldring, who was killed by her father Assaf, according to his confession on Saturday. The child's mother Lisa, who recently became religious, expressed her consent after initially opposed to the procedure. Assaf Goldring attempted to commit suicide for a second time while being treated at Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba on Saturday night, where he was hospitalized for the wounds he inflicted upon himself upon trying to kill himself after allegedly strangling his three-year-old daughter to death several hours earlier. The 30-year-old was arrested after being found by emergency officials next to the body of his three-year-old daughter in the village of Batzra, in the Sharon district of central Israel on Saturday. Police believe Goldring strangled his daughter, Noa, to death, and then attempted to commit suicide by slitting his wrists and attempting to overdose on sleeping pills. Yaakov Lappin contributed to this report.
