A woman was found murdered in Netanya Sunday morning in what police suspect was an act of domestic violence by her husband.

The victim, Salmalek Tasara, 35, was killed just five years after her sister, Malkam Tasara, was murdered by her husband in Rishon Lezion.

Sharon police said Tasara was found stabbed to death at her apartment on Motzkin Street in the city after they received calls from neighbors reporting screaming inside the apartment.

“When we arrived at the scene we found a woman around 35 years old unconscious on the floor with serious signs of violence to her upper body. She showed no sign of life and we had no choice but to declare her dead,” said Magen David Adom paramedic Daniel Siluk.

Inside the apartment at the time were the couple’s two children, ages one and two, as well as Salmalek’s 17-year-old daughter from her first marriage.

None of the children were harmed.

Police said there is no history of domestic violence complaints against the husband or the wife.

The husband fled the scene before police arrived, but was arrested in Petah Tikva late Sunday afternoon. He was handed over for questioning to a special investigative team set up by Sharon police to handle the case.
