Oi has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying there had been bad blood between Inami and himself but he denied any intent to kill. Let me see Oi went to Inami's apartment with a knife and had no intent to kill him!! Ok he just wanted to say look I have a knife lets talk.

Where in the story does it say he bought the knife with him? You are guessing please wait for more facts.

For all you know the 66 year old neighbour could have been cooking and playing loud music they other guy went over to complain saw the knife grabbed it and stabbed him...

What is it about the geriatric crime wave this year? Maybe it is subjective but I don´t remember seeing that many stories about over 70s involved in so many violent crimes as this year.
