Menachem Kochavi, 76, was indicted Tuesday morning on suspicion of bludgeoning his 70-year-old wife to death with a hammer last week. Kochavi allegedly became furious after his wife, Hadassah, refused to give him NIS 2,000 for a care worker to see to his needs, and slammed the hammer into her head several times while she slept in bed in their Rehovot home. He was remanded in custody until next week.
