The indictments on three charges were confirmed on July 10 by the Examining Magistrates, the prosecutor's office said.

The men are charged with "the murder of a vulnerable person committed because of the true or supposed victim's religion," as well as "aggravated theft" and "degradation by dangerous means to individuals," the office said.

"We were waiting impatiently for such a reaction from the justice system in regards to the final indictment," Alain Knoll, the victim's son, told CNN affiliate BFMTV on Monday.

"We are very satisfied with the way things are going, with the fact that there will be a judgment, with the fact that the double aggravating circumstance of anti-Semitism has been retained."

According to lawmaker Meyer Habib, Knoll escaped the Vel' d'Hiv' Roundup in 1942, which was ordered by Nazi occupiers and resulted in the mass arrest of 13,000 French Jews.

Those detained were held at the Vel' d'Hiv cycling track in Paris before thousands were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.

Her death in 2018 was decried by political figures and Jewish organizations across France.

French President Emmanuel Macron described her killing as a "dreadful crime" on Twitter. In his comments he also reaffirmed his "absolute determination to fight against anti-Semitism."

The former Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said in January that 687 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in 2019 in France compared to 541 in 2018 -- a 27% increase.
