A Welfare Ministry investigative committee has deemed Naor and Adir Sodmi, the twin brothers indicted in the December 2009 murder of 7-year-old Leon Kalantarov from Bnei Ayish, fit to stand trial, Army Radio reported Thursday.

According to the committee's report, the pair are not mentally challenged and therefore, are responsible for their actions.

The state attorney accuses the Sodmi twins of strangling Kalantarov to death after assaulting him sexually.
