Yemen’s court of appeals sentenced a former air force pilot to death on Sunday for the murder of a Jewish teacher, reports Arab News. Abdel Aziz Yehia Hamoud Al Abdi, 40, was found guilty of premeditated murder by a court in the northwestern province of Amran.

Moshe Yaish Nahari was killed in December 2008.

The Amran court dismissed a lower court’s guilty verdict, which claimed that Al Abdi was “mentally unstable” and order the accused to pay the victim’s family $27,000 in blood money.

After judge Ahmed Al Budani read the verdict on Sunday, Al Abdi said: “This sentence is an honor to me.”
