A 29-year-old resident of Rehovot was charged with murdering his father in December at the Petah Tikva District Court on Monday.

Emile Buskila repeatedly stabbed his father, Shlomo, who had entered his room in an attempt to give him a cell phone so that he could speak to a psychiatrist, according to the indictment.

"The accused, who was angry at his father due to a previous argument, became more angry, took a knife, and stabbed his father repeatedly, causing his death," the indictment sheet said.

Police launched a large scale search after Buskila fled the crime scene in his home, and captured him after a few hours hiding in an abandoned building near a cemetery.
