American convicted of murdering Irish student

A Japanese court on Tuesday found a 19-year-old American man guilty of murdering an Irish student in a Tokyo hotel room last year.

The Tokyo District Court recommended that Richard Hinds, a musician, be sentenced to no fewer than five years and no more than 10 years in prison.

Nicola Furlong, the 21-year-old Irish woman, died in the presence of Hinds in May 2012, police said.
