Some two weeks since the one-month-old died in a jacuzzi in the Miami Hotel in Ashdod, the court-ordered psychiatric review is complete and the mother has been ruled mentally incompetent, and she will not stand trial.
The death of the baby from a Jerusalem chareidi couple led to protests as police insisted on an autopsy. Despite ZAKA efforts to prevent one, the matter came before the High Court of Justice, which backed a lower court ruling to permit an autopsy.
Both the mom and dad were taken into custody and they have since been released to house arrest.
