With the arrest of two men in connection with the murder of a Japanese woman, Hiromi Shamada, 41, in late December 2009, more details on the circumstances surround the woman's death are beginning to emerge.

Police have now confirmed that robber and rape were to motivating factors precipitating the murder. Forensic tests and police investigations have confirmed the victim was raped and that a number of valuable personal belongings were taken from Shamada, including a watch, credit cards, and three necklaces.

Two construction workers from a Kuta project, Mawardi, 31, and Abrurahman, 20, have been arrested and reportedly admitted killing the woman. Mawardi was arrested in Kuta just days after the woman's death while police pursued Abdurahman to his home town of Jember in East Java. Police claim that Abdurahman attempted escape and was shot in the leg.

Police have linked weapons and personal possessions of the victim to the two men now in police custody.

Shimada reportedly met the two men while drinking at a local café before inviting the two men back to her rented home in Kuta. There, she offered the men more alcohol before retiring to her bedroom to take a bath. Acceding to the men, she left the door to her bedroom and bathroom open, which the men interpreted as an invitation to sex. When the bathing Shimada refused the men's advances a struggle ensued that culminated in the rape, murder and robbery.

The men told police they threw away the victim's credit cards as they were ignorant on how to use the cards.

According to a Bali police spokesman, both men now face a possible 20-year prison sentence for their acts.
