UltraOrthodox Jewish Israeli Convicted in BrutalMurder of Pales. 16yr old




JERUSALEM — An Israeli court convicted a 31-year-old man on Tuesday of abducting and murdering a Palestinian teenager in 2014, rejecting his late-hour insanity plea and bringing to a close a case that has convulsed Israelis and Palestinians.

The Jerusalem District Court ruled that the man, Yosef Haim Ben-David, was fully responsible for his actions when he and two teenage nephews snatched Muhammad Abu Khdeir, 16, off a street near his East Jerusalem home, drove him to a forest on the outskirts of the city, choked him, beat him unconscious and burned him to death in the early hours of July 2, 2014.
