Concerning the case where 19 men and women, killed at a facility for the  disabled in Sagamihara City in 2016, the trial of a former employee, Satoshi Uematsu (pictured) accused of murder, will begin on January 8th 2020.

The Yokohama District Court is scheduled to hold the first hearing of a lay-judge trial of Satoshi Uematsu, aged 29, on January 8th 2020. The court is considering giving a ruling by the end of March 2020.

In the trial, the names of the victims killed in the stabbing rampage at the care home, Tsukui Yamayuri-en, will be withheld.

During the investigation following his arrest, Uematsu, a former worker at the care home, said people with disabilities are not needed. A psychiatric test showed he has narcissistic personality disorder.

In February 2017, public prosecutors indicted Uematsu on murder and other charges, judging that he was mentally competent enough to take criminal responsibility.

  1. I truly hope & pray that this piece of scum gets the death penalty and suffers horribly for every second of it, it’s the very least that he deserves. Bigoted piece of shit, I utterly despise people like him.
