Police in Hiroshima on Saturday arrested a 19-year-old youth on suspicion of killing his 65-grandmother by beating her to death at their home.
According to police, the suspect – who cannot be named because he is a minor – repeatedly punched his grandmother in the face with both fists at around 4 p.m. on Friday.
Fuji TV reported that the suspect then called 119 and said his grandmother had fallen unconscious. She was taken to hospital where she died at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
The suspect lived with his older sister, mother and grandmother. His mother and sister were out on Friday afternoon.
Police said the suspect – who is unemployed and does not attend university -- has admitted killing his grandmother and said relations between himself and her had been bad for some time.© Japan Today
