A second Palestinian man was convicted in the murder of five members of the Fogel family in a West Bank Jewish settlement.

Amjad Awad, 19, was convicted Monday in a military court for the March 11 murders in Itamar. His cousin, Hakim Awad, already was convicted and sentenced to five consecutive life sentences for the murders.

Both confessed to the murders; forensic evidence reportedly is available linking them to the crime scene.

The cousins murdered Udi Fogel, 36, and Ruth Fogel, 35, and their children, Yoav, 11; Elad, 4; and Hadas, 3 months, in a Shabbat eve attack on their home in the northern West Bank. 

Three of the Fogel children survived the attack. Two were sleeping in a side bedroom and were not discovered, and a daughter was out of the house at the time of the killings. She came home to discover the bodies.
