The State Prosecutor's Office decided, Thursday evening, to charge Shushan Baraby with three counts of manslaughter and abandonment and not with negligent homicide in the recent hit-and-run deaths of three women in Netanya. The charges are scheduled to be filed, Friday morning, in the Kfar Saba Magistrates Court, after a judge ordered prosecutors to file charges and did not accept a police request for a continuance in the case.
The first charge in the case was filed on Wednesday against Oren Chanouna - who works in a business owned by Baraby, who was indicted for abandonment by a passenger. According to the indictment, Chanouna and Baraby left the vehicle, inspected the damage caused by the impact, and got back in the car in order to flee. When they couldn't start the engine, they allegedly fled on foot.
