Haifa serial killer found guilty

The Haifa District Court on Tuesday convicted Nicolai Boner of four counts of murder and several other offenses. The court called for further hearings on the case at which a psychiatrist is set to be present, after Boner's defense lawyers appealed for a lenient sentence. Boner told Army Radio that he had confessed to the crimes because he felt threatened during the interrogation and out of fear that his daughter would be harmed.
