The pair also allegedly stole a television screen from the apartment. Police alleged that the two women’s partners were involved in the murder. The identity of the suspects cannot be published due to a gag order imposed by the court. They remain in custody.

Lazuz was found with stab wounds in a burnedout home in Dizengoff Street by emergency responders. He stayed in the apartment during periodic visits to Israel. Police suspect the murderers set fire to the home to cover up evidence of the crime.
