Defendant Kuboki was sent to prosecution.

The first trial for a shocking medical crime appeal was held on December 15 at the Tokyo High Court.

The defendant, Aiyumi Kuboki, 36, a former nurse, is charged with preliminary murder for poisoning to death three patients, a man and a woman. The crime scene was the former Oguchi Hospital in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.’ According to the indictment of the first trial, in which the defendant was sentenced to life imprisonment in November 2009, Kuboki allegedly killed three male and female inpatients in their 70s and 80s in September 2004 by putting the antiseptic solution “Diamitol” into their IV drips.

The prosecution appealed against the sentence of life imprisonment handed down by the first trial. They argued, ‘The general framework of the sentence cannot be anything other than the death penalty. The defense, on the other hand, argued that the death penalty is ‘unavoidable. The defense, on the other hand, argued that ‘the death penalty is the ultimate punishment that cannot be imposed except in unavoidable circumstances,’ and that overturning the first-instance verdict would be a ‘denial of the trial system.

In an article distributed on October 8, 2009, immediately after the first trial, “FRIDAY Digital” reported in detail on the incident Kuboki is alleged to have committed. We would like to recount the unprecedented medical crime in which several elderly people were victimized and the “extra crime” in which more than 20 people may have been victimized (some content has been revised).

Large bubbles like soap bubbles ……

Let’s go back to seven years ago when the incident occurred. The trouble was discovered in an unexpected way.

“The drip is bubbling ……

It was September ’16, just after the death of the victim, an 88-year-old man. A nurse, different from Kuboki, noticed a strange sight. The IV bag was filled with large bubbles that looked like soap bubbles. Upon receiving the report, the hospital called the police. An investigation was launched.

The defendant Kuboki came to our attention. Kuboki was often seen by his colleagues carrying a bottle of disinfectant while working the night shift, as if to hide it. Although the disinfectant was used infrequently in the hospital, several bottles were found in a used state.

When questioned by the police, Kuboki confessed: “I started using the disinfectant around July of the same year. He confessed to the police that he had been repeatedly mixing disinfectant into IV bags of hospitalized patients with syringes since around July of the same year.

Between four and five days after September 15 of the same year, Kuboki injected disinfectant into the IV bags of hospitalized patients one after another, resulting in the poisoning deaths of three men and women in their 70s and 80s.

The number of victims is likely to be much larger. There may be many more than the three who were involved in the case. Kuboki also said that he injected disinfectant into more than 20 patients over a period of about two months. Most of the deceased patients were cremated, and no blood or other evidence was left behind. There is also no objective physical evidence, such as security cameras at the crime scene. In the end, only three cases of murder were prosecuted based on confessions.

Kuboki told the police that his motive for committing the crime was “fear of being blamed by the bereaved family. He also said, “When a patient dies while I am on duty, I have to explain to the bereaved family.

When a patient died while I was on duty, I had to explain to the bereaved family. That was troublesome and I was not good at it.

Since obtaining her nursing license in April 2008, Kuboki has worked at several medical facilities, including the former Oguchi Hospital. However, she was traumatized by several bereaved families who harshly criticized her for her poor workmanship. He was traumatized by the accusations of several bereaved families of his poor workmanship, and he even took a large dose of sleeping pills, leading to depression and even a leave of absence from work.

He was also depressed and even took a leave of absence from work. He told the police that he was worried about whether the families of the victims would be convinced by his explanations. It is hard to believe that they died quickly and were in such a state that they needed to explain to their families. It is also bizarre that he killed three people in such a short period of time.

At the first trial, the defense did not dispute the facts and argued that the defendant was under the influence of schizophrenia at the time of the crimes due to a heavy mental burden. He claimed that he was in no condition to make a proper judgment. The appeal is scheduled to conclude with the second trial on March 12, 2012.
