    A second Palestinian man has been convicted for the brutal murder of five members of the same family nine months ago.

    Amjad Awad was convicted in an Israeli military court of five counts of murder. His co-conspirator and cousin, Hakim Awad, was given a 130 year prison sentence in September.

    The pair broke into the home of the Fogel family in the West Bank town of Itamar on a Friday evening last March. They killed both parents and three of the children, including three-month-old baby Hadas, whose throat was slit.

    The bloodied bodies of the victims were discovered by 14-year-old Tamar Fogel when she returned home.

    Prosecutors said during the trial that they were seeking five life sentences for Amjad.
