The Tel Aviv District Attorney's office served an indictment on Thursday, charging three men with the murder of the leader of Jaffa's Orthodox Church Association.

Attorney Gabriel Cadis, 61, was stabbed to death on January 6th, Orthodox Christmas day. His murder has shocked Jaffa's Christian community.

According to the indictment, filed in the Tel Aviv District Court, a legal dispute over a valuable Jaffa property motivated the three defendants - 24-year-old Tawfik Abu Maneh, 26-year-old Fuad Abu Maneh and their uncle, 55-year-old Talal Abu Maneh, to conspire together and murder Cadis. Earlier this week, police revealed that there had been a protracted legal conflict between the two sides, as the Abu Maneh family said that Cadis and the association had no right to evict them from the property on Jaffa's Ahiluf Street.
