The Beersheba Magistrate's Court ruled on Wednesday to extend the remand of Asher Dahan, the 42-year-old Elad resident suspected of murdering Rabbi Elazar Abuchatzeira late last month.

Rabbi Abuchatzeira, a well-known religious figure and grandson of the Baba Sali, was stabbed in the upper body by a visitor to his Beersheba yeshiva last month. 

Paramedics attempted to resuscitate him, but the Rabbi died en route to hospital.

Other visitors to the yeshiva captured Dahan, 42, minutes after the incident and handed him over to police. Dahan was immediately arrested and remanded in custody.
