A Japanese-Brazilian woman allegedly involved in the murder of a former classmate in Osaka in 2014 was extradited Wednesday from China, where she had been held after fleeing from Japan.
Japanese police arrested Oishi Ketty Yuri, 32, aboard a flight from China. Oishi is only the second person extradited to Japan from China, with which Japan has no extradition treaty, according to the National Police Agency.
