YOKOHAMA — May 21, 2014

A 29-year-old woman and her 31-year-old ex-boyfriend blamed each other over the death of the woman’s 6-year-old daughter in their trial at the Yokohama District Court on Tuesday.

In 2013, police arrested Yukie Yamaguchi and her ex-boyfriend, Ryuichi Yatsui, for allegedly burying the body of the woman’s daughter, Airi, in a forest in Yokohama, in 2012.

The court heard that Airi was registered to attend an elementary school, but when she didn’t show up on the first day of school in February 2013 year, the school asked to see her, but Yamaguchi refused. The school then contacted the child consultation center who reported the incident to police, TBS reported.

The remains of Airi’s body were discovered in April, 2013, based on Yamaguchi’s confession.

The court heard that Yamaguchi and Yatsui buried Airi’s body, TBS reported. Yatsui testified that Airi died after Yamaguchi hit and kicked her to discipline her, but Yamaguchi said that Yatsui also used to hit Airi.
Yamaguchi cried as Yatsui testified that he saw her hitting Airi at the dinner table, TBS reported.

Yatsui said they both decided to bury Airi’s body in the forest.
