42-year-old man arrested over mother’s murder


Police in Kumagaya, Chiba Prefecture, have arrested a 42-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 69-year-old mother at their home on Saturday.

According to police, Kazuyoshi Okuwaki, a part-time worker, has admitted to the charge, Fuji TV reported. Police said Okuwaki stabbed his mother, Kinue, several times in the chest with a knife some time on Saturday night. He then covered her nose and mouth with a towel.

Okuwaki turned himself in at Kamagaya Police Station at around 10:05 p.m. When police went to the house, they found Kinue lying on the floor. She was declared dead at the scene.

Police said Okuwaki has yet to give a motive for killing his mother. The two lived in the house by themselves.

Living with your parents for such a long time is not healthy, you never get a chance to become an adult in your own mind. That stress will find it's way out one way or another.

If you are over 30 years old and still living at home do everyone a favor, face your fears and find your own life.

@Yukijin, I agree but how would you not know or how would you know that perhaps his mother didn't allow him to grow up. Perhaps he wanted to move out and she didn't want him to. Perhaps she did everything for him making himself less dependent and more dependent on him. How do you not know she was a controlling mom from birth to present and he just had enough. Perhaps??

Some mothers can be over protective controlling and motherly, maybe this was the case and he had simply just had enough of her meddling mothering and coddling.

...had enough of her meddling mothering and coddling

where i used to live , I had a man-child living behind me in his mammy house, and every sun morning he would rev his old black skyline annoying the whole block. Across the street was a senior rt wing nutcrack, who watched me like a nosey loser. When I came outside, he brought his rikkety racist dusty behind out They raised hell alternating continuously , and even had the support of the kobanites to come around false flagging. I was so relieved when I moved. btw I wait for the news about those powder kegs one day.
