Prosecution now says Simon drove car that killed Meital Aharonson

The State Prosecutor's Office on Sunday filed a revised indictment to the Tel Aviv District Court against two men suspected of killing Meital Aharonson in an October 2008 hit-and-run accident on the city's Ibn Gvirol Street. The revised charge sheet now states that it was Shai Simon who drove the car when it struck Aharonson, after initially arguing it had been Shalom Yemini. "There is no argument that when the car was abandoned 15 minutes after the accident, Simon was in the driver's seat while Yemini sat in the seat next to him. Since the beginning of the trial, there have been changes regarding the evidence collected in the case and witness accounts," the state explained.
