Main Beersheba stabbing suspect to be indicted

The Southern District Attorney is expected to file an indictment late Thursday morning charging a 19-year-old man in connection with the stabbing death of a Beersheba father-of-two.

Idan Ohion was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of murdering 35-year-old Gadi Vichman. A further eight suspects, four of whom were allegedly at the park where the stabbing took place, were arrested with him.

Ohion will appear before judges at the Beersheba District Court for a remand extension hearing and for the indictment to be served against him. It is not yet known whether the DA will charge Ohion with murder or manslaughter.
