Israeli-American dual citizen Oren Shlomo Mayer was sentenced to life in prison earlier this year for the death of Canadian citizen Sanjay Ryan Ramgahan. Another U.S. national, Ewart Odane Bent, received 12 years and six months in prison as both were found guilty of the murder, dismemberment and abandonment of his body.
American Jason Hobbie was sentenced to 18 months and Taiwanese-Canadian Wu Hsuan (吳宣) to six months for aiding and abetting the murder.
All four were present at the Xindian River in Yonghe, New Taipei City, Friday where prosecutors wanted to find out more details about the case. A witness told them that while he was fishing near the scene, he heard a heavy object falling into the water and saw Mayer and Bent walk around in the area, CNA reported. [FULL STORY]
