YOKOHAMA (Kyodo) The October suicide of businessman Kazuyoshi Miura in Los Angeles has closed his case of alleged shoplifting at a Kanagawa Prefecture convenience store in 2007, the Yokohama District Court said Monday.

Miura hanged himself at a Los Angeles detention facility after being moved from Saipan, where he had been arrested in connection with the shooting of his wife in 1981 in Los Angeles. She died of her wound the following year in Japan.
