The Yokohama District Public Prosecutor’s Office has decided not to slap a murder charge on an American man already on trial for abandoning a woman’s body in Kanagawa Prefecture.

Gregory Gumo, 41, allegedly dumped the body of Mariko Akitaya, 42, in Koajiro Bay in Miura, Kanagawa Prefecture, last July. He has been on trial over abandoning her body since October while a murder charge was pending.
