A woman detained on suspicion of involvement in the death of her sister earlier this year is conditionally released, the Ynet news site reports.

There are restrictions placed on the woman’s movements, and police are continuing their investigation, the report says.

The 61-year-old woman was held for a number of days on suspicion of involvement in the death of her sister, 65, who fell from a Tel Aviv building where they lived.

The woman was found dead at the foot of a building on Pumbedita Street on April 26. An autopsy uncovered no suspicious evidence and police concluded that she had likely gone up to the roof to check a water heater when she tripped and fell to her death.

However, the deceased woman’s sister had made changes to the latter’s life insurance policies both before and after her death, increasing the potential payouts, and subsequently filed a claim for NIS 6 million ($1.7 million), the Kan public broadcaster reported.
