Familys ex-employee arrested for murders

The man arrested for the murder of three generations of an Israeli family had been fired from the family’s restaurant.

Damian Kirilik, 38, was arrested last week for the Oct. 17 murder of six members of the Oshrenko family. Kirilik was fired as head waiter of the family’s restaurant in Rishon LeTzion more than a year ago.

Their bodies, all bearing stab wounds, were found in their burning apartment.

Robbery and avenging honor appear to be the motives behind the killing, according to reports. Kirilik’s wife, who also had worked at the restaurant, was arrested for aiding the alleged murderer, as were other family members. — jta
