The 34-year-old Peruvian, La Rosa Vite Edgard Antony, was arrested by the Aichi police as a suspect in the murder of two Brazilian women, the Brazilian Akemy Maruyama at the time, 27 years old, and her sister Micheli Maruyama, 29 years old.
Five years ago, on December 30, 2015, the Peruvian was investigated on suspicion of throwing gasoline and setting fire to the third floor of the apartment of the municipal residence Nishi-Kamezaki in the city of Handa, with the two Brazilian women inside.
At first, the case was investigated as arson, then as homicide, as a judicial autopsy revealed that the two had strangulation marks on their necks.
The Peruvian was released for lack of evidence, but was arrested again on this date (December 8). In Mie prefecture, the Peruvian had already been arrested for theft and use of stimulants.
