Well, given that Japan does have the death penalty, it is hard to imagine that the penalty would not be applied in this case.

Excuse me, what is the intention JT quotes his Japanese middle name in every paragraphs and emphasizes his Japaneseness?

Maybe that's his name.

Takeshi H -

Other news sites have also reported his name the same.

Apparently it's not his "middle" name, but his double surname - Nakada Ludena.

My kids also have double surnames (eg. Suzuki Browny)

How can any sane person by a lawyer and defend this man? They wanted him acquitted, are you kidding me! Anyone who kills the way he did deserves death. They are tainted, a rotten cancer and of no use to society anymore. Lights out Vayron.

Child and elderly killer. He showed no mercy and deserves none himself.

In a just world he would suffer as they did before he dies.

I don't care if he is crazy, put this monster down. If I were that father I'd want to do it myself.

At least he did have a Lawyer. The role of a Lawyer is at times difficult, no more so than in this case.

It's a necessity of a proper justice system.

On Friday morning, around 500 people queued up in front of the court to get a ticket for 24 seats provided to observe the high-profile case.

What a bunch of cretins. Maybe the immediate victims and relatives of the accused is all that is needed. 500 coffin watchers who get their enjoyment from the morbid and suffering of others. This is sick as well.

A Peruvian man accused of killing six people

Accused?? Convicted, no??

I'm not a huge fan of the death penalty, but some heinous crimes deserve the death penalty such as this.

His older brother Pedro Pablo Nakada Lucena is a known convicted serial killer in Peru. They acquired the Nakada surname in Peru by paying a Japanese citizen to adopt them as adults, changed their surnames to Nakada, in order to help them migrate to Japan as Japanese descendants. Vayron Jonathan Naked Lucena is the younger brother.

Very sick brothers.

I always get the feeling that in such cases, death sentence is such an easy way out. I say let the bastard rot in prison for life, isolated.. in my opinion that would be a proper punishment.

I think the press wants to be sure to accurately identify the person so that someone with a similar name isn’t mistaken for a heinous murderer.

Now... you could twist this another way.....

How much of your Tax, are you willing to spend, on keeping a felon in Prison, rather than snuffing them out straight away ?

It's hard to feel any sympathy for a lowlife like this who murders six people, but as far as the morailty of the defence lawyer is concerned, that's their job, and in order to ensure a fair trial someone has to do it and do it as well as they can so that there's no suggestion of a miscarriage of justice. That would only help the defence or any appeal.

The trial was fair, the guy is guilty, he get his just desserts. So far as the rights/wrongs of the death penalty are concerned, from what I read, the vast majority of people in Japan support the death penalty in cases like this one.

It's hard to argue the death penalty isn't an appropriate sentence in this heinous case. I don't think the world will be a worse place without this person.

Makes you wonder what goes through someones brain to travel all the way from Peru to Japan to murder people.

I haven’t seen anything that would indicate that was his reason for coming to Japan.

When Vayron Jonathan Nakada Ludena went to a Peruvian prison several years ago to visit his older brother, known as the "apostle of death" after being convicted of killing 25 people considered Peru’s most prolific serial murderer, the unraveling of his lonely, transient life in Japan was well underway.

Nakada Ludena is the sibling of Pablo Nakada Ludena, who killed 25 people in Peru between 2000 and 2006. In 2011, he told television reporters from behind bars: “I am not a criminal, I’m a cleaner, I got rid of homosexuals and the homeless from society. I killed 25 people to clean the world of scum.”

Wow. What a family. I hope they are the only 2 brothers in that lot.

When they throw the lever. JUSTICE SERVED!

I hope his execution will bring closure for all the victims. May they rest in peace.
