Nazareth District Court convicted Yihya Farhan Wednesday for the murder of Dana Bennet, Czech tourist Sylvia Molrova and Aharon Simahov, a cellmate of Farhan's during a brief incarceration in a Tiberias prison.

The body of Bennet, who disappeared in 2003, was found in May 2009 near Tiberius.

The court said that his partner's testimony was very credible and detailed and strengthened the case against him.
