A man is suspected of stabbing his ex-wife and her new partner to death in their apartment in Lod.

A preliminary police probe found that the man, in his 30s, broke into his former spouse’s apartment and stabbed the couple with a knife, before stabbing himself in the torso in an attempted suicide attempt. He suffered a serious wound.

A Magen David Adom team declared the couple dead at the scene and began issuing treatment to the suspect. He was arrested after. The police believe a conflict was the motive for the murder. The suspect had previously been suspected of violence against his ex-wife.
