Pizem murder trial continues with details of mother's hardheartedness

As testimony in the Rose Pizem murder trial continued on Wednesday in the Petah Tikva District Court, police investigator Eli Korland gave court evidence of the girl's mother Marie-Charlotte's negative emotions toward the four-year-old, whose body was found in Tel Aviv's Yarkon River on September 11, 2008. Korland quoted from a letter Pizem sent to her partner Ronnie Ron - also Rose's paternal grandfather - in which she complained that Rose "was stealing Ron's attention" from her. Pictures found in Pizem and Ron's home showed the pair's two common daughters, but did not contain images of Rose. Earlier on Wednesday, investigator Yehuda Lahat testified that Pizem had attempted to hand Rose over to Chabad, but that the movement rejected the child since she was not Jewish.
