Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday sentenced Yehie Turk to 15 years in prison for abetting the murder of toddler Aviv Illouz in 1999. The sentence came after Turk admitted to the crime as part of a plea bargain. He had originally been charged with murder.

Turk has already served nine years of the sentence while the trial against him proceeded.

Aviv Ilouz was killed when a car bomb attached to his father's vehicle exploded.
