The Nazareth District Court on Monday sentenced Y’ to 14 years in prison and added a 30-month suspended sentence for assisting in the murder of teenager Dana Bennet and Czech national Silvia Molrova who lived in Israel as a volunteer.

Y’, who is now 21 but was a minor when the crime had been committed, admitted to the charge in the framework of a plea bargain she had reached with the State.

Bennet’s mother Vicky said after the sentence that Y’ deserved a life sentence and that she considered her a murderer since she did not prevent the crime from taking place. She claimed that the only reason Y’ decided to disclose the affair was her concern that the main suspect in the case Yihya Farkhan would be released and kill her upon his release.
