Judge of the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court, Christina Hilo Asad, released to house arrest the 31-year-old resident of Jaffa who was arrested on suspicion of strangling Liora Hayut, who was found lifeless in her apartment that caught fire in the Florentin neighborhood, about eight years ago.
The judge stated that there is currently no indication of Inos's crime.
At the request of the police, she delayed her decision to file an appeal.
On top of that, the police added an insanity offense to the suspect in the murder of Liora Hayut.
Hayut, 42 years old at the time of her death, lived in a studio apartment on the first floor of which she conducted sculpting and creative workshops.
On the second floor was the living room, where the firefighters found her lifeless.
Upon finding her body, Merhav Yiftach police officers began an investigation and the body was transferred to an autopsy at the Institute of Forensic Medicine, in order to examine the circumstances of the death.
Over the years, other suspects were also interrogated, some of whom were detained for certain periods and at the end of the day, the proceedings against them did not mature into an indictment.
In the last six months, there was a dramatic development in the investigation when a DNA test revealed that the current suspect, who has a criminal record for property crimes, was in her apartment and he was arrested.
The representative of the police said at the hearing that since his arrest the suspicion has strengthened and investigations have been carried out and this is an incident from 8 years ago with all the complexities of the passage of time and they have not yet imposed the DNA evidence on him on the other hand. There was his reference to how his dna got to her apartment. Attorney Alfasa also claimed that in the autopsy report that was published several years ago, there was no confirmation of the fact that the murdered woman was raped and the police cannot say that the investigation is progressing and the suspicion against his client is growing stronger.
Judge Hilo Asad who released the suspect wrote in her decision that the material does not justify a further extension of detention.
"The suspect was interrogated several times, the findings that were presented were enough to justify his arrest for the first extension of detention", the judge noted that this time the offense of illegal immigration was also added, but no evidentiary indication of this was given and thus the other suspect was also not interrogated 7 years ago on these suspicions.
"Due to the dignity of the deceased and the sensitivity of her family, maximum caution must be taken, especially against the background of the investigation material," the judge wrote in her decision.
