The grandfather and mother of a 4-year-old girl whose remains were found in a Tel Aviv river were charged with murder.
Ronny Ron and Marie Pizem, who also have two young children together, were charged Monday with killing Rose Pizem and dumping her body in a red suitcase into the Yarkon River.
Rose was buried today in the town of Montesson, west of Paris.
An autopsy performed last week at The Institute of Forensic Medicine in Tel Aviv could not determine the cause of death.
Ron confessed to police during his arrest more than a month ago that he accidentally killed Rose by hitting her when she bothered him while he was driving. He told police to search the Yarkon River for a red suitcase carrying her remains.
Ron later recanted his confession.
Jewish community leaders, and a representative from Israel’s police force attended Rose’s funeral, which was conducted in “religious Christian” tradition, according to the CRIF Jewish umbrella organization vice president, Meier Habib, who participated, reported the French Press Agency.
