Gansler: Death of Killer in Israel Brings Closure

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP)- Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler says the killing in Israel of a notorious prisoner who committed a gruesome murder in Montgomery County in 1997 brings closure to a troubled man's life.

On Sunday, Israeli special forces raided a prison after Samuel Sheinbein stole a weapon and shot three guards. Sheinbein barricaded himself before he was killed.

Sheinbein fled to Israel after murdering and dismembering Alfredo Tello Jr. in Maryland in 1997. He could have faced a life sentence in Maryland, but Israel refused to extradite him back to the United States.

Gansler says Sheinbein was nearing the end of his Israeli prison term. He says the incident Sunday seems like a suicide rampage just before Sheinbein's release.

Gansler says it brings closure, but he hopes the Israeli guards all survive.
