TOKYO (TR) – A woman accused in the drugging and robbery of a number of men in Tokyo said in explaining her innocence that she has multiple personalities, reports TBS News (July 27).
On Monday at the Tokyo District Court, Ikki Jin, a 31-year-old resident of Suginami Ward, said that she recalls nothing about the incidents. “I think another personality inside me committed the crimes,” she said.
On July 7 of last year, police arrested Jin for lacing a drink consumed by a 23-year-old male with a sleeping powder and robbing him of a total of 350,000 yen in cash and valuables in February.
A few weeks later, police re-arrested Jin, this time accusing her of swindling a 32-year-old man employed in the real estate industry using similar methods in December.
Prior to her first arrest, victims told police they had been swindled by a woman who introduced herself as “voice actress Aiko.”
Jin is currently on trial for five cases.
The defendant’s lawyer is requesting that his client not be prosecuted since she is experiencing a split personality and is unable to take responsibility for her actions, reports Nippon News Network (July 27).
While in detention earlier this year, Jin took on the personality of “Genki-kun,” who she describes as a four-year-old boy.
