A man is charged for the murder of a woman who was found dead after an apartment fire on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv last month.

According to the indictment reported by Ynet, Ilana Azgadyan, 36, knew her alleged killer, 33-year-old Daniel Margoshin.

Prosecutors say he entered the apartment from the balcony and stabbed her 31 times while she was in bed. He then allegedly set her body and the apartment on fire, then went to Jerusalem to pray at the Western Wall.

Later that evening he was shot by police near Jerusalem’s Central Bus Station as he attempted to stab officers who had stopped and questioned him as he was covered in blood.
