Israeli Given Death Sentence For Murdering His Friend In Jealous Rage

An Israeli man was handed the death sentence this past week after he was sentenced at the Bangkok Criminal Court having been found guilty of murdering his friend and fellow countryman in 2016.

51-year-old Shimon Biton was charged with murder last November following the discovery of his friend Eliyahu Cohen’s body buried in newly laid concrete at his Nonthaburi home.

The murder was uncovered after police launched an investigation into the disappearance of the victim following a request by the Israeli Embassy to the Crime Suppression Division.

During questioning Biton soon confessed, admitting he’d murdered his friend in a jealous rage after he learned Cohen was having an affair with his wife.

Biton’s 17-year-old son was also arrested and implicated in the murder and concealment of a body. The juvenile court have yet to announce their verdict.

His wife, Nantiya Saengurai, who went missing before the murder is believed by her family to be dead and Biton is behind her disappearance and murder.

He has 30 days to appeal his sentence.
