OSAKA —- A 25-year-old mother whose two young children starved to death surrounded by rubbish after she locked them in her apartment has been sentenced to 30 years in jail.

Single mother Sanae Nakamura regularly left her daughter, 3, and one-year-old son, in the apartment in western Osaka while she spent the night at her boyfriend’s house, reports said.

She had begin leaving them alone in March 2010, the Asahi Shimbun said, adding that sometime in early June that year she stopped coming home. But when she did eventually return later that month :| the two tots were dead, the paper said.

Nakamura was convicted of murder by Japan’s lower courts and sentenced to 30 years at earlier hearings, which found she had known that leaving the children without sufficient food would kill them.

The country’s supreme court on Monday upheld the sentence, the Asahi and Kyodo News reported on Wednesday.

Absolutely disgusting. But only 30 years for double murder? That is an unacceptably low punishment.

That would be murder, felony child abuse and probably a neglect charge just for sh*ts & giggles here - life without parole, maybe in a SuperMax if the judge gets PO'ed (and who wouldn't?) Bye-Bye.

They should just take her out back and shoot her like a dog.

I love how one person being a scum bag (and lets face it, she's clearly mentally ill, even if not defensibly so (by definition)) seems to be carte blanche for everyone to stoop to her level.

She'll serve her time.. Lets not join her in hades hey?

Lock her in a room and let her starve to death. Or, put her in a room with a bunch of hungry wolves.
