Police: Two Columbus Children Killed By Father In Israel

Jun 13, 2014


Israeli Police say a man has confessed to stabbing and killing his two children while they visited him from the United States.

10-year-old Sara Levy and her 11-year-old brother, Yishai, attended Columbus Torah Academy. Their mother is a preschool teacher at the Jewish Community Center. Police have not released the name of the father, who turned himself in late Wednesday. Police say the man and his ex-wife had been involved in a complicated divorce and they received complaints of violence against the father before the couple split. The mother was an American immigrant who moved with the children to the U.S. after the divorce to be closer to her family.
