A 94-year-old well-known writer and playwright has been arrested in connection with the death of his wife, police say.
The man, whose name was not released, was brought in for questioning about the death of his wife in Tel Aviv more than a year ago. According to police, the 87-year-old woman was found dead in a bathtub last August by paramedics after her husband called an ambulance.
The woman was found covered in bruises, and therefore an autopsy was ordered and it was subsequently determined that her death was not accidental. Police have launched an undercover investigation into the incident, which led to the day’s arrest.
