Man allegedly kills step-mom, hides body in car for days

Ibrahim Alanami suspected of causing step-mother's death during physical confrontation, hiding her body in car's trunk. Body found after suspect's car breaks down

A southern Israel resident allegedly murdered his step-mother, stored her body in the trunk of his car for four days and was arrested after the body was found when his vehicle broke down near Dimona's Nuclear Research Center last Thursday. A gag order on the details of the affair was lifted Thursday.


The Beersheba Magistrate's Court remanded Ibrahim Alanami on Thursday for an additional 15 days and sent him for a psychiatric evaluation.

The guards detained Alanami and alerted the police. A police sapper opened the car's trunk and found the body in an advanced state of decay.


"He could have hid the car and the body without a hitch if his vehicle hadn't broken down," said police interrogator Eran Cohen.


According to him, the suspect was searching for his step-mother, Karmian Alanami, 47, who had been missing for several days.


He found her, but she wanted to return to her family in Tulkarm and an argument broke out between the two, which turned physical and culminated in her death.


After realizing that his step-mother is dead, Alanami allegedly decided to hide her body in the trunk of his car, keeping it there for several days until his arrest.
