According to the indictment, at the end of an exchange between the couple, Spitalnikov took a hammer in his hands and began hitting Gribanev in the head and body. He then laid her in her bed and covered her with a blanket and later climbed to the roof of the building, took sedative pills, returned home – and went out to buy food.

The indictment further stated that Spitalnikov slept in the apartment all night and the next morning went up to the roof of the building again. At the same time, the Israel Police received a report of a fear of suicide, due to a man standing on the edge of a roof. When police arrived at the building, they removed the defendant from the roof and took him for a psychiatric examination. All the while, he did not tell police about what happened and did not find out that a body was found in his home.

The body, then, was discovered only hours later – a day after the murder, after police tried to call the deceased to inform her of her partner’s hospitalization. However, after unsuccessful contact attempts were made, a family member was found with keys to the apartment and the police approached her with him, so the woman was found lying on the floor. A medical team was called to determine her death on the spot.
