Police were investigating a possible murder-suicide attempt near Jerusalem Thursday evening, after finding the body of a woman next to her seriously injured partner.
Paramedics who rushed to the scene in the Jerusalem suburb of Motza found the 30-year-old woman in a home without signs of life and were unable to resuscitate her. The 25-year-old man was taken to a Jerusalem hospital.
The two had both suffered stabbing wounds, and according to Channel 12 news police suspected the man had stabbed the woman and then himself.
A months-old infant was found in the couple’s home. She was unharmed and handed over to the care of relatives.
A neighbor told the Ynet news site that the couple had only moved in about a month ago.
