A Man Accused of Homicide Pleads Who Cares?
Roy Browning Jr. pleads guilty to second-degree murder
In court documents, Roy Browning Jr. admitted to the crime. The woman he killed was his wife, JoEllen Browning. According to court documents, the two had been struggling financially and Roy Browning lied about his finances to his wife. The blood underneath her fingernails matched his DNA. He was arrested six months after the crime. His sentencing is scheduled for December 2 and he faces up to 50 years in prison.
As part of the plea agreement, Browning agreed to a reduced sentence. He was facing a life sentence for first-degree murder, but prosecutors convinced him to accept a lesser charge so he could avoid going to trial. He will now spend at least 50 years in prison, and must serve 70 percent of his sentence before parole eligibility.
Although Browning was arrested and charged with murder, his trial has been delayed several times. His wife emailed him to ask about discrepancies in their bank account and asked him to speak to the banker. The banker was going to tell him that the money in the joint account had been withdrawn and that Roy had taken out high-interest loans. JoEllen Browning had a life insurance policy worth $2 million.

He killed 19 people at a Japanese care home
A man accused of killing 19 people at a Japanese health care facility has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of homicide. While he did not deny committing the crimes, he argued that he was suffering from a psychiatric disorder that led him to commit the crimes. As such, he is legally responsible for the deaths.
Satoshi Uematsu, a former employee of a care home outside Tokyo, has admitted the killings. He did not deny being involved in the crimes but he did admit to being the main suspect. The defendant appeared in court dressed in a navy suit, a white shirt, and a tie. His long black hair was tied back in a ponytail. Uematsu’s lawyers have said that he was suffering from a psychiatric disorder that caused him to carry out the attacks.
The 29-year-old suspect was described by neighbours as polite and helpful. He also said he believed society would be a better place if the disabled were no longer in society. However, after killing 11 people in the care home, the suspect drove himself to the police station, where he confessed to the crime. Police found knives, blood, and sharp edged tools in his car.
