Japanese woman jailed for killing husband over online gameOctober 24th, 2008 - 5:36 pm ICT by Bupha Ravirot
A Japanese piano teacher has been arrested for the murder of her virtual husband after divorced over Maple story.
The 43-year-old woman is from Kyushu province in southern Japan, decided to get even with the man by using login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, logged into his account, and killed his character off. The man logged into his account to discover the “murder” of his avatar and filed a complaint with police in Sapporo. The woman was jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data. Though she has not yet been formally charged, if convicted could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.
Though this crime did not happen in real life and she has not yet planned to take revenge but she said she got really angry when she got suddenly divorced without any sign or warning. Clearly online games do have great impact in human mind.
