Sentencing Due for Fogel Murderer


A military court is scheduled to declare sentencing, Monday morning, for Amjad Awad of the Samarian Arab village of Awarta in March's murder of five members of the Fogel family in the nearby Jewish community of Itamar, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio.

Awad pleaded guilty in October. His cousin Hakim was sentenced to five life sentences (130 years). Amjad is expected to receive a similar sentence.
