A woman in Izumisano, Osaka, was arrested Sunday after confessing to fatally stabbing her grandmother in a dispute over living expenses. Hiromi Nishimura, 20, who lived with her 78-year-old grandmother, Haruko Nakano, called police at around 10:50 a.m. and said, "I've stabbed my grandmother in the neck."
Police arrived to find Nakano face down on the kitchen floor bleeding from multiple stab wounds. She was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.
According to police, Nishimura, who is unemployed, had been sharing Nakano's pension, which had occasionally caused arguments between the two. Nishimura told police that around 10 a.m., they had an heated argument over money. "She said if I wasn't going to bring in any money, I should get out," Nishimura was quoted as saying.
Nishimura told police she had been thinking about killing her grandmother since around March.© Compiled from news reports
