Three months after being indicted for manslaughter in the hit-and-run which killed Meital Aharonson, Shalom Yemini was released to house arrest on Monday due to "weak evidence." After the hearing at the Tel Aviv District Court, Aharonson's mother shouted at the judge, "Now he'll have another chance to kill someone." As well as manslaughter, Yemini is charged with causing serious injury in aggravated circumstances, leaving the scene of the accident, drunken driving, destroying evidence, failing to obey a red light and making an illegal u-turn. According to the indictment, Yemini and another suspect, Shai Simon, killed Aharonson and seriously injured Mali Yazdi on a central Tel Aviv street. Dan Izenberg contributed to this report.
