According to the indictment, in December Agassi decided to implement the plan.

The pleas helped him and he died on the spot.
So, according to the indictment, Agassi went to his relatives' house next to Shalu's apartment, took cleaning supplies and a sheet, and returned to his neighbor's apartment.
He wrapped his body, lowered it to the entrance of the building, and tried unsuccessfully to lift it onto the scooter to make his body disappear.
Later, Agassi went up to the apartment with the fuel he had hidden, poured it and set the apartment on fire.
After that, he poured gasoline on Shalu's body, set it on fire and fled the scene.
Agassi parked the scooter in a place far from his house, covered it to prevent its discovery, and threw away a bag with items he used in the murder.
