Suspect formally charged for Japan’s Abe assassination

Japanese media reported Friday that prosecutors formally charged Tetsuya Yamagami , a suspect in the assassination of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with murder.

Yamagami was also accused of violating a country gun control law, while prosecutors also determined that his mental state could withstand a trial.

According to previous police reports, Yamagami claimed to have killed Abe because of his ties to the Unification Church, which, according to the suspect, played a crucial role in his family’s bankruptcy.
