He was executed by hanging alongside another Japanese serial killer named Hiroshi Maeue in Osaka on July 28, 2009.

Yamaji murdered his own 50-year-old mother with a metal baseball bat in Yamaguchi city, Yamaguchi Prefecture at the age of 16 on July 29, 2000.

He said he killed his mother because of her accumulated debts and ‘silent’ telephone conversations with a girl he loved.

After the matricide, he turned himself in to the police who arrested him on July 31, 2000 and later granted him parole in October 2003.

According to Wikipedia, 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 and subsequently set their house ablaze.

He was arrested by the Osaka police on December 5, 2005 and during his trial he said, “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.”
