An elderly Jewish couple in Morocco were murdered in their Casablanca home last week, allegedly by their gardener. The Times of Israel has the gruesome story: (with thanks: Michelle)

 Sam Toledano and Vicky Chetrit

 The killer then dismembered their bodies and disposed of the parts in different areas across the city.

According to Moroccan media, the couple’s gardener was arrested by police and has confessed to the crime, which he said he committed due to financial hardship.
The victims were identified as Sam Toledano and Vicky Chetrit.

According to local reports, the man, identified in the Moroccan daily Le360 by the initials M.R., was facing eviction from his apartment when he hatched a plan to kill the couple and steal their money and jewellery.

Bad enough to burgle but to plan to kill them as well is sick. He couldn't have left them to live their lives, he had to take that away from them too
