A district court Monday ordered the city of Zushi, Kanagawa Prefecture, to pay ¥1.1 million in compensation for giving the address of a woman to the stalker who tracked her down and murdered her in 2012.

The 47-year-old husband of Rie Miyoshi had demanded ¥11 million from the municipal government for the violation of privacy.

A private detective hired by her former boyfriend obtained their address from the city by impersonating the husband.
