A Rahat resident has been arrested on suspicion of killing his sister, according to a report on Israel Radio Wednesday.
The man confessed to stabbing his sister to death three weeks ago as he perceived that she had damaged the family's honor.
The suspect told investigators that he buried the body in an open area near the city following the stabbing.
The prosecution has filed a indictment at Beer Sheva District Court against the suspect, and two of the victim's uncles who are suspected of kidnapping her.
