Charges are filed in a Haifa court against Shlomo Kartoziya on suspicion he killed his father and attempted to kill his mother.

Kartoziya was arrested at the scene of the crime last month in Hadera.

According to police, they were called to an apartment in the northern city following a report of an incident of violence. Upon arrival, they said, they discovered the body of an 80-year-old man.

Hebrew media reports said neighbors heard screams coming from the apartment and called police. Officers who arrived at the scene witnessed the son trying to stab and strangle his mother, and rescued her.

Reports said that police tased the suspect four times before he could be subdued and arrested.
