Chisako Kakehi 70 dubbed the'Black Widow, has been sentenced to hang over the untimely deaths of lovers and a husband in Japan

The Kyoto District Court on Tuesday sentenced a 70-year-old "black widow" to death for the murders of her husband and two common-law partners and the attempted murder-robbery of a boyfriend, by poisoning them with cyanide compounds. All four men were aged over 70.

"It was a heinous crime driven by greed for money", the judge said.

Kakehi has become notorious over accusations she dispatched a number of elderly men she was involved with, drawing comparisons with the spider that kills its mate after copulation. She had said later to the judges that she was ready to face the death penalty: "Even if I was being executed tomorrow, I would die with a smile ".

Her lawyers plan to appeal, "suggesting the high-profile trial could yet drag on", the website adds.

According to the BBC, Kakehi had three other husbands who all passed away, though she has not been charged with any crime in relation to their deaths.

While dismissing the possibility of suicide, accident or the involvement of persons other than Kakehi in the cases, the judge said the accused took extraordinary acts, such as inheritance procedures, soon after the incidents. She said she "got angry" because her husband gave more money to a woman he had previously dated, and said she didn't care if she was execution.
