So when you realize that you were being used for immigration status contact the police and Report the lady why did you have to kill

Very unfortunate he did not get the death penalty.

No human being has the right to murder another human being.

Her residency was about to expire... well, let it expire... the end, DONE!

This story, his story, is full of holes and doesn't make any sense.,

Oh, you sat in on the trial and heard the actual details? Can you sum them up here, as this article has only the barest minimum amount of details, and nothing to be able to form an actual opinion like you have done.

Not in favor of the death penalty, but life in prison would have been better than just 23 years - after all, two died.

He deserves death sentence.

23 years? Only that? Life would have been appropriate.

I know it's the lawyers job to come up with ways to defend the accused but man, must be hard for to get a good night of sleep (knowing you're defending such trash)!

From death penalty to 23 years is way too lenient.

Chinese sisters murdered in Japan. See the weight of that sentence already? Chuck the legal system, common man on the street will give you enough excuses why 23 is too long. Hypocrisy.

For the lawyer? Naah......... they’re made of some different stuff. Well, actually no. They’re same as us till they become lawyers.

Hmm. Usually Japanese who are found guilty of multiple murders in Japan get life in prison or the death penalty. 23 years in prison? Would the sentence have been more severe had they been Japanese sisters?

23 years for murdering 2 people is too lenient. The sentence sounds more like for 'manslaugher' than 'murder'.

Kinda biased judgement tbh.. 2 lives for 23 years so 11.5 years for each life taken? Thats sounds like a bargain no?

Discrimination?

I have heard that in China, crimes against foreigners are punished much harsher than crimes against natives. If a Chinese man did the same against 2 Japanese females, there is absolutely no way he escapes the death penalty.

Criminal logic. Killing the elder sister alone would have been good enough. Pointless to do the younger sister.

This is the norm in most western countries
