Several hundred mourners attended the Beit Shemesh funeral of Natan Jorno and his daughter Yamit Wednesday afternoon, both of whom were gunned down Tuesday morning in the elder Jorno’s law firm by a disgruntled security guard and client over an alleged monetary dispute.

The father and daughter, both attorneys, aged 51 and 26, were shot repeatedly at close range by the suspect – Getagon Tadesse, 49, a Ma’aleh Adumim resident who made aliya from Ethiopia in 2004 – in the family-owned law office, on the third floor of Jerusalem’s Clal building.

According to police, Tadesse, a father of four, had retained Jorno’s law firm to represent him in divorce proceedings. Claiming to be dissatisfied with the representation, Tadesse went into the law office to demand his money back before brutally killing the two.

Tadesse was apprehended shortly after the murders by police officers in the building and has since confessed to the crime and said he will plead insanity in his defense, according to the District Magistrate’s Court.
