Police arrest partner of a 60-year-old man who was discovered dead after being stabbed multiple times in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood; the partner called to report that she had ‘found’ him dead.
A sixty-year-old man was found dead in his apartment in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv by police Thursday night after having suffered multiple stab wounds.



After launching a preliminary investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death, police began to suspect that his partner, who called to report that she had discovered his body, may have been responsible for the murder.

The suspect, a 45-year-old woman, called the police at 9:20pm, informing them that she had discovered his body.

Arriving at the chilling scene to find the bloodstained body, it became apparent to the officers that the woman was intoxicated. She was subsequently arrested and taken in for investigation.


The neighborhood’s community manager Yehudah Ben Joseph said that initially, there was a fear that the stabbing had been nationalistically motivated.



“We know that it is actually a criminal background and not national. This is a sad story. Even the smallest thing shocks the residents,” he said.
