Indictment Against Alleged Murderer of 2 Wives


A murder indictment was filed, Sunday, against 65-year-old Mordechai Chai of Herzliya in the death, three weeks ago, of his second wife. He was not tried 21 years ago in the death of his first wife, because he was determined to be mentally unfit to stand trial.

In requesting that Chai be held until the end of legal proceedings against him, the prosecution claimed that in the current case, it had a psychiatric opinion that Chai was not psychotic, was aware of his condition, confesses, and is ready to accept the punishment.
