Israeli gets 6.5 years for beating Sudanese migrant to death

A 22-year-old Israeli man convicted of beating a Sudanese migrant to death in Petah Tikva two years ago is sentenced to six and a half years in prison for the killing.

As part of an agreement with the Central District Attorney’s Office, Dennis Bershivitz plead guilty to manslaughter over his brutal November 2016 assault of Babikir Ali Adham-Uvdo, who succumbed to his wounds days later.

A second man involved in the fatal assault has been convicted of aggravated assault, but he was a minor at the time of the attack, and will serve in a juvenile detention facility. The court did not release details of his sentencing.
