A 70-year-old Japanese woman has been sentenced to death for the murder of three men, one of whom was her husband, and the attempted murder of another.

Chisako Kakehi is accused of using cyanide to kill her lovers and make millions from insurance payouts. Her lawyers plan to appeal the sentence.

Prosecutors said she targeted wealthy men who were mostly elderly or sick. She became known in Japanese media as the Black Widow, after the female spider which kills its mates after sex.

She had been diagnosed with dementia.
