Police turned over to prosecutors Monday their case of illegal entry against Jose Manuel Torres Yake, a 33-year-old Peruvian man charged with the November murder of a 7-year-old girl in Hiroshima.

Torres Yake is suspected of obtaining a fake passport bearing the name Juan Carlos Pizarro Yagi and a fictitious date of birth from a broker, entering Japan on April 18, 2004, and illegally staying in the country, according to police.
