By Aarja Mody
A man has been condemned to live in jail for the murder of an elderly Jewish woman in her Paris flat.
Yacine Mihoub, 32, was found guilty in March 2018 of stabbing Mireille Knoll, 85, 11 times and then setting her body on fire during a failed heist.
Her assassination caused a public uproar in France concerning anti-Semitism.
Knoll, who narrowly escaped being deported to Nazi death camps as a Parisian Jew during WWII, was suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
Alex Carrimbacus, 25, an accomplice, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for robbery motivated by anti-Semitism.
