A Jerusalem court on Monday, Nov. 30, 2015, convicted two Israeli youths in the grisly killing last year of Abu Khdeir, while delaying a verdict for the third suspect in the case due to a last-minute insanity plea. In Monday’s ruling, Judge Jacob Zaban determined that the third suspect, 31-year-old Yosef Haim Ben David, and two Israeli minors had kidnapped Abu Khdeir from an east Jerusalem sidewalk in July 2014 and burned him alive in a forest outside the city.
