Tomokazu Mihashi is on trial in Japan for leaving his father's body in their apartment for eight months after his death last March. Except it wasn't his father.
Mihashi said he didn't know that the victim was not his real father until the DNA test was carried out on the body after his arrest.
"I was shocked (when I heard the result)," he said.
In the opening hearing on Thursday, public prosecutors changed their description of Mihashi's father from "real father" to "father as listed on the family register," based on the result of the DNA test. [Link]
