MAEBASHI — The Maebashi District Court sentenced a gang group leader to death Monday for his involvement in the murders of his crime partner and two gangsters between 2001 and 2005 in Annaka, Gunma Prefecture. The defense for Tsutomu Takamizawa, 52, the leader of a gang group associated with the largest Japanese crime syndicate, Yamaguchi-gumi, denied his role in two of the three cases.

In November 2001, Takamizawa conspired with his subordinates in the fatal shooting of a construction worker who was his accomplice in a case of insurance fraud to keep him from talking, according to the court. Takamizawa shot one of his subordinates to death in his office in April 2005 and conspired with his men in the fatal shooting of a rival gang boss in September 2005, it said. (Kyodo News)
