Remand of Prime Suspect Extended in Soldier's Murder

The Petach Tikva Magistrates Court extended by nine days, Tuesday, the remand of the prime suspect in the recent fatal stabbing of soldier Yiftach Grady during a brawl at a club in Ra'anana, northeast of Tel Aviv. In its ruling, the court said there was evidence tying the suspect to the murder weapon, time and location of the murder.

At the request of the police, the court also extended a gag order on details of the prime suspect's identity to allow progress in the investigation.
