Yamaji Yukio was a recidivist murderer who was released only to kill again. He had escaped the death penalty because he was only a juvenile when he killed his mother, but for his second and third murder, he did not. I will post the article from Wikipedia and also some post from the Japanese Wikipedia which I have did an internet translation, keep in mind, the English is not good in the Japanese version but try to follow it carefully. 

Yukio Yamaji (山地 悠紀夫 Yamaji Yukio, August 21, 1983 – July 28, 2009) was a Japanese serial killer. He murdered his own mother in 2000, and then murdered a 27-year-old woman and her 19-year-old sister in 2005.

He stated that his motives to commit matricide were his mother's silent telephone calls to the woman to whom he fell in love and his mother's mounting debt. However, he was paroled in October 2003. After, his release he got involved in illegal activities.

On November 17, 2005, Yamaji raped and murdered a 27-year-old woman and her 19-year-old sister with a knife, in Naniwa, Osaka. He then set fire to their apartment and fled. The two victims had never met Yamaji before. He was arrested on December 5, 2005. While in custody, he stated to the Osaka police, "I could not forget the feeling when I killed my mother, and wanted to see human blood."

On December 13, 2006, the Osaka District Court sentenced him to death. His defense made an appeal but according to his lawyers he retracted it because he was "reluctant to pursue leniency." He was executed by hanging alongside Japanese serial killer Hiroshi Maeue in Osaka on July 28, 2009. At the age of 25, he is the youngest murder criminal executed in Japan since 1989.

One of his motives was his mother's silent telephone to the woman who he fell in love with. Another motive was his mother's debt. He was paroled in October 2003 and was released officially in March 2004. However, his work after the release was illegal.

Man admits to slaying Osaka sisters
OSAKA (Kyodo) Police issued an arrest warrant Monday to a 22-year-old man after he admitted killing two sisters in Osaka.

He had been detained since early this month for allegedly trespassing in a building adjacent to the women's condominium, police said.

The man, who killed his mother in 2000, told investigators he murdered the sisters Nov. 17 because he "could not forget the feelings" he experienced when he killed his 50-year-old mother, police said.

He was identified as Yukio Yamaji, 22, unemployed with no fixed address.

The two victims are Asuka Uehara, 27, and Chihiro Uehara, 19.

Man pleads guilty to murdering sisters

OSAKA (Kyodo) A 22-year-old man charged with murdering two sisters and torching their dwelling pleaded guilty Monday, saying he has no plan to contest the charges by prosecutors, who claim he killed for pleasure.

Yukio Yamaji (left and inset), accused of murdering two sisters in Osaka last November, faces presiding Judge Masao Namiki in this courtroom sketch of the opening session Monday of his Osaka District Court trial.
Yukio Yamaji, unemployed with no fixed address, told his first trial session at the Osaka District Court, "The facts read (by prosecutors) are correct."

According to the prosecutors, Yamaji, who in 2000 murdered his mother, broke into a condominium in Naniwa Ward, Osaka, in the early hours of Nov. 17 and fatally stabbed Asuka Uehara, 27, and Chihiro Uehara, 19.

The women were found with deep stab wounds to their chests and faces.

After killing them, Yamaji stole 5,000 yen and set the condo on fire before fleeing, the prosecutors said.
The victims did not know Yamaji.

Yamaji's lawyers tried to seek leniency by denying part of the prosecutors' claims, saying he had no intention of stealing money.

They also demanded a psychological analysis be conducted on him.

Before Yamaji was served an arrest warrant on the murder charge in December, he had been detained for trespassing in a building adjacent to the women's condominium earlier the same month.

During a police investigation, Yamaji, who killed his mother in 2000 when he was a minor, told investigators he killed the sisters because he "could not forget the feelings" he experienced when he killed his 50-year-old mother.

"I wanted to see human blood," Yamaji was quoted as saying by an investigation source.
Earlier, Yamaji told the investigators about the knife he used in the murders and they found it at a Shinto shrine a few hundred meters from the building.

Yamaji was institutionalized after beating his mother to death with a baseball bat in August 2000 in the city of Yamaguchi when he was 16.

The Yamaguchi family court had sent him to a reform center for minors after concluding the attack on his mother was not deliberately planned and "it is possible to correct" him "although he does not have a deep sense of guilt." He was released from the reform center in October 2003.

During Monday's court session, Yamaji did not make specific comments on his motive.

Man to hang for sisters' murders

Defendant, 23, obsessed with killing people, judge says

Yukio Yamaji stabbed Asuka Uehara, 27, and her 19-year-old sister, Chihiro, to death, stole 5,000 yen and torched the apartment Nov. 17, 2005, the court found.

The women suffered deep stab wounds to their chests and faces.

"It was a cruel and outrageous crime," presiding Judge Masao Namiki said. "The defendant has not reflected on his crime, and it is unlikely that he will be rehabilitated. His criminal responsibility is too heavy."

"The defendant is dangerous, as he is obsessed with killing people," Namiki said. "The victims were killed in unimaginable fear and pain, and it is inevitable to hand down capital punishment."

Yamaji was released from a reformatory in October 2003 after killing his mother, 50, in the city of Yamaguchi in July 2000 with a baseball bat. He was 16.

After killing the two Osaka sisters, Yamaji allegedly told police investigators, "I could not forget the feeling when I killed my mother, and wanted to see human blood."
The court accepted expert evidence that determined he was mentally competent.

His lawyers, who submitted a guilty plea for the man, had sought a life sentence, arguing he should spend the rest of his life atoning for his crime.

Yamaji's family life up to the point of killing his mother was "exactly like hell," he told investigators.

After his father died when Yamaji was 11 years old, he and his mother were forced to live in heavy debt, and it was often hard to buy decent food, according to the investigators.

The Yamaguchi Family Court had sent him to a reform center for minors after concluding the attack on his mother was not deliberately planned. It determined that though he lacked a deep sense of guilt, correction was possible.

The father of the two sisters, Kazuo Uehara, held a news conference after Wednesday's sentencing.

"Executing him will never bring them back," he said, but he feels Yamaji deserves to be put to death.
"In that sense, the ruling makes me feel justice still exists in Japan," he said.

Japan executes three for multiple murders
AFP, Jul 28, 2009, 11.07am IST
TOKYO: Japan on Tuesday hanged three inmates convicted of multiple murders including a Chinese national and a middle-aged man who found his victims through an Internet suicide site, the justice minister said.

The government identified the condemned as Hiroshi Maeue, 40, Yukio Yamaji, 25, and Chinese national Chen Detong, 41, who had killed three of his compatriots and wounded three more Chinese people.

All three men had committed "grave and cruel" crimes and "taken precious lives with very selfish motives," Justice Minister Eisuke Mori said after the sentences were carried out in Tokyo and the western city of Osaka.

Maeue, executed in Osaka, killed three people including a 14-year-old in 2005 after he got to know them separately through an Internet website where people contemplating ending their lives meet to make suicide pacts.

Maeue arranged to meet his victims under the pretense they would jointly commit suicide through carbon monoxide poisoning. He then lured them into a van in a parking lot, tied their hands and feet and choked them to death.

He confessed to deriving sexual pleasure from watching people suffocate.

Yamaji, also executed in Osaka, raped and then stabbed to death two sisters, stole their money and set fire to their apartment in 2005.

Chen, the Chinese national, was executed in Tokyo for killing three of his compatriots and injuring three more in Kawasaki, southwest of Tokyo, in 1999.

Japan, which executed four convicted murderers in January, is the only major industrial nation other than the United States to impose the death penalty.

Capital punishment is overwhelmingly supported by the public in Japan, which has one of the world's lowest crime rates.

But Japan has regularly come under fire from the European Union and campaigners over its use of the death penalty, especially its practice of hanging inmates without any prior warning for them or their families.

Makoto Teranaka, of Amnesty International's Japanese chapter, said after the latest executions Tuesday that "this is a grave act that cannot be permitted amid international calls to suspend capital punishment".

Despite the criticism, conservative governments have stepped up the pace of executions. Last year Japan hanged 15 death-row inmates, the highest number since 1975, when the country executed 17 people.

The latest executions came as the ruling Liberal Democratic Party faces August 30 elections. The opposition has said it would "encourage national debate over capital punishment" if it takes power.
