09:39, July 11, 2012

JERUSALEM, July 10 (Xinhua) -- An Israeli man who killed his three young children in 2010 was sentenced Tuesday to three life sentences.

Itay Ben Dror, who admitted to stabbing his three children aged five, eight and 10 respectively, was sentenced at Israel's Petach Tikva District Court.

He will also pay a sum of NIS 500,000 (around 120,000 U.S. dollars) as compensation to his ex-wife.

Ben Dror was convicted of stabbing his three kids to death at his apartment on July 24, 2010 while they were sleeping. He tried to commit suicide afterwards but failed.

In a note he left for the rescue personnel, he wrote that he and his children "will now finally be together for eternity in heaven."

His defense attorney claimed that Ben-Dror suffers from a number of clinical, psychological illnesses, including depression.
