The Tel Aviv District Court on Tuesday convicted Ronen Ben-Adi with murdering Margarita Lautin in a plea bargain agreement. Shimon Sabah, who was the getaway driver for the shooting, was also convicted in a plea bargain with aiding Ben-Adi and conspiring to commit a crime.



Lautin was gunned down during a botched underworld assassination attempt on a beach in Bat Yam in July 2008.



According to the deals reached with the two, Ben-Adi will be sent to prison for life, and Sabah will be incarcerated for seven years. They have already paid Lautin’s children NIS 350,000 as part of the deal.
