Asaf Daabul, the welfare officer in the Rishon Lezion Municipality, said Sunday that Tzakula Tzakul, who was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband Shifrao Tzakul overnight Friday, told her social worker three weeks ago that her husband was threatening her.
Daabul said that following Tzakula's complaint, welfare workers offered to provide her husband with psychological treatment but he refused to be treated, Israel Radio reported.
Police said that there were no previous signs of violence in the family and that preliminary psychiatric examinations showed that Shifrao was fit for regular detention.
