A lay judge trial in a case where a 15-year-old boy killed an unfamiliar 21-year-old woman with a knife at a commercial facility in Fukuoka City will begin on the 6th.

While the defense is expected to send the boy to a medical juvenile training school for rehabilitation, the prosecution is expected to imprison him in prison to atone for his crimes, and the whereabouts of the trial will be watched.



Starting on the 6th, the Fukuoka District Court will start a lay judge trial against a 17-year-old boy.



The boy was accused of murder in August when he was 15 years old and stabbed an unfamiliar 21-year-old woman with a kitchen knife at a commercial facility in Chuo-ku, Fukuoka.



The boy had just been temporarily discharged from the juvenile training school at the time, and after being arrested, the family court decided that he should be subject to a criminal trial like an adult and sent him back to the prosecution and was charged.



At the trial, the defense will acknowledge the indictment and claim that the abuse that was received in childhood influenced the case based on the expert opinion.



Then, I will send them to the Medical Reform School for specialized treatment and education for rehabilitation.



Prosecutors, on the other hand, are likely to ask prisons to imprison them for their crimes.



In addition, the victim's bereaved family will also participate in the trial and seek strict punishment.



The murder trial, allegedly filed by the 15-year-old, is expected to proceed over the rehabilitation of the boy or the compensation for his crimes.
