The Supreme Court has upheld a high court acquittal of Kazuyoshi Miura over the death of his wife in the early 1980s, it was learned Thursday.

Prosecutors have until midnight Monday to lodge a complaint against Wednesday’s ruling. Given that no complaint has ever led to a ruling being overturned, the top court has effectively finalized Miura’s acquittal in the high-profile murder case.
