The Tel Aviv District Court sentenced a Palestinian from Kalkilya to life imprisonment plus 15 more years for the kidnapping and murder of 21-year-old Petah Tikva resident Inbal Amram, whose car he wanted to steal. The court had already convicted Muhammad Jahidi on charges of murder, robbery, kidnapping for the purpose of extortion, and staying in Israel illegally. The defense and prosecution reached a plea bargain agreement whereby the sentence should be life imprisonment, which, in effect, meant that he had been sentenced only for the charge of murder. However, the court felt Jahidi should also be given a jail sentence for the other crimes, and tacked on another 15 years. The extra years will be served simultaneously with the life sentence.
