The Japanese killer known as the “Black Widow” has lost her final appeal to avoid execution.

Chisaku Kakehi, 74, killed three of her accomplices, including her husband, and attempted to kill a fourth man.

Kakehé received massive inheritance and insurance money after poisoning her victims with cyanide.

Her lawyers appealed the 2017 ruling, arguing that she suffers from dementia and does not understand legal procedures.
