The Beersheba District Court convicts Aviad Moshe of the attempted murder of his wife Shira Isakov in September last year.

Moshe is also convicted of abusing their infant son, then 1.5, having repeatedly stabbed and beat Isakov in front of him at their home in the southern town of Mitzpe Ramon.

“The crime of attempted murder was proven above all reasonable doubt,” Judge Yael Raz Levi says.

Isakov, who attended the hearing, says she’s happy with the ruling.

“Justice was done here,” Isakov tells reporters. “I call on other women not to be afraid to complain.” She is no longer married to her attacker.
