Zama 9 Killed First Trial Defendant Admits Killing Lawyer Claims Consent September 30 15:12
Three years ago, in the case where the bodies of nine young women were found in an apartment in Zama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, the trial of a 29-year-old defendant accused of robbery and murder began, and the defendant admitted to the killing.
Meanwhile, the defendant’s lawyer claimed that the victim had agreed to be murdered and remained guilty of accepting murder.
Three years ago, in October 2017, nine bodies of men and women between the ages of 15 and 26 were found in an apartment in Zama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, including three high school girls from Gunma, Saitama, and Fukushima, as well as a female university student in Saitama Prefecture. He is charged with robbery and murder.
Three years have passed since the incident was discovered, and the trial of a lay judge began on the 30th at the Tachikawa Branch of the Tokyo District Court.
Shiraishi entered the courtroom wearing a white mask with his hair extending to his shoulders and wearing light green clothes and a wearing a white mask.
He said there was “no doubt as to the indictment” about the indictment and admitted the killings and other charges.
On the other hand, the defendant’s lawyer claimed that the victim had agreed to be murdered and that it would only be a crime of consent murder.
He also stated that he did not have criminal responsibility or was significantly weak at the time of the incident.
In a subsequent opening statement, prosecutors said of the circumstances leading up to the incident, “We opened a Twitter account in March 2017 because we thought it would be easy for women who had a desire to commit suicide to commit suicide. He began exchanging messages with several women as if he had a desire to commit suicide.”
“The biggest issue is whether the victim consented to the killing based on his true intentions. The defendant has consistently acted in a purpose and has no problem with his ability to take responsibility.
It is a deliberate crime solely to satisfy one’s own desires, and it is despicable and cruel.”
I insisted on it.
In response, the defendant’s lawyer said of the victim, “I went to him of my own will after I realized that my death would be realized by Mr. Shiraishi’s hand. The nine had consent to the killing.”
He also claimed that the defendant had some mental disorder at the time of the incident and was suspected of having lost his heart or weakness.
During the hearing, the defendant sat with his eyes close and his legs stretched out in front of him.
I was listening to both sides’ claims.
