Facility for disabled persons killing case To go to court today February 17 4:12
A defendant charged with murder and other charges in a case involving the murder of 19 residents at a facility for the intellectually disabled in Sagamihara City will be sentenced to prosecution on Tuesday.
Former employee of the Tsumui Yamayurien, a facility for the intellectually disabled in Sagamihara, is accused of killing 19 residents.
The trial has no dispute over the facts, and the issue of responsibilities is at issue.
The defendant was ordered to leave the court in a first trial with a biting gesture, but since then he has appeared every time and has repeatedly discriminatory claims against persons with disabilities.
A question asked by the defendant last month said, "I think it is wrong to compete for accountability. I believe I am accountable."
Defendant's lawyer, meanwhile, has been acquitted of not being accountable for the effects of mental illness resulting from the use of cannabis.
Prosecutors appear to demand extremely strict penalties, claiming that defendants can be held accountable, such as intentionally appearing in a police station immediately after an incident.
The trial will be finalized by a defendant's lawyer on the 19th, and the ruling will be sentenced next month.
