The Jerusalem Disctrict Court ruled two consecutive life sentences for Daniel Maoz who was convicted of murdering his parents. He was sentenced to additional five years in prison for destroying evidence. Photo by Flash90 Jerusalem - An Israeli who stabbed his mother and father to death was convicted of murder on Monday partly because he searched online for tips including “how to kill your parents and get away with it”.

Daniel Maoz, 29, wanted money from his inheritance in order to pay heavy gambling debts, the Jerusalem District Court found. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for the 2011 murders.

The case presented an unusual challenge to the prosecution: DNA evidence linking Maoz to the killings was found at the murder scene, his parents’ apartment, and he tried to explain that away by accusing his identical twin brother of the crime.

In its decision, the court cited other physical evidence and an examination of the defendant’s computer to refute that.

The incriminating Internet searches also included “can soap clean DNA from a knife?” and “murder for inheritance”, a transcript of the ruling showed.

Maoz said he made the searches out of “academic curiosity”.

When all the frum world cares about is is kosher phones and Internet assifas, things like this can happen.

Dear 'Anonymous,'
This idea of yours is not 'Torah.'
If a person does 'Teshuva' this is between him and G-d Almi-ty.
No rabbi would tell him: "You're a good guy."
Feeling remorse is great, but 'halacha' is that he should, perhaps,
be 'chaiv misa' by a 'beis din' 'lamata.' If there was no warning and witnesses
there are other aspects to it.

If as the comments say, he did not look religious when he committed the crimes, and apparently he became frum while in Jail, then I blame the writer of the article and VIN, for not disclosing that, and causing chilul Hashem by the picture posted.

i feel its most unworthy to write about 'all' frum people in this light. dont jews have enemies enough from the the rest of the world that they have to start running each other down like this. a terrible crime has been committed. judgement passed. when judgement has been passed on earth, one is not judged by heaven again.

because "religious" people don't kill anyone, including relatives.

The well-publicised murder in Midwood a week or two ago was a misprint, right?

because dressing frum means nothing, it is purely a uniform that any person can don. a goat has a beard but it doesn't make him a rabbi. seriously, are you that naive?
