A district court on Wednesday denied a new trial for a 95-year-old woman who served 10 years in prison for the 1979 murder of her brother-in-law in Kagoshima prefecture.

It was Ayako Haraguchi’s fourth attempt to clear her name, with presiding judge Masato Nakata saying the new evidence presented by the defense was “not clear enough” to acquit her.
