A Japanese court has sentenced a Chinese man to 20 years in prison for killing his former girlfriend's female roommate.

26-year-old Chen Shifeng had been charged with murdering 24-year-old Jiang Ge, a Chinese student, in an apartment in Tokyo in November last year.
Jiang had been living with Chen's former girlfriend.

In the lay judge trial at Tokyo District Court, the prosecutors sought a 20-year prison sentence for Chen.

This case resulted in public outrage because Chen's girlfriend, friend and roommate of the killed girl, refused to cooperate with the police saying it was not her problem when in fact, the girl was killed because she tried to help her. Such self-centeredness is unforgivable.
