The defense attorney of the prime suspect in the Bnei Brak murder of a young woman claimed Friday morning that the deceased might have been pregnant. During a hearing at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court, the attorney indicated that a third party would therefore be the prime suspect, not his client. The court ruled that the Abu Kabir Forensics Institute in Tel Aviv conduct a post-mortem in the presence of an observer appointed by the Public Defender's Office. The court also extended the 25-year-old prime suspect's custody by 11 days and sent her for psychiatric evaluation. On Thursday, a Jerusalem mother and her two daughters were arrested in the capital in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old woman, who was found with a knife in her throat in Bnei Brak, on the city's Jerusalem Street. Early Thursday morning, police received an alert from a female caller who said, "I killed someone in the Ramat Gan area," before hanging up. Officers searched the area but found nothing. A short time later, the family of the deceased called police, saying they were concerned for her life. Police began combing Bnei Barak, and in one of the buildings, officers discovered a woman with stab wounds, lying in a pool of blood.
