Police in Fukushima have arrested a 43-year-old man on suspicion of fatally stabbing this 71-year-old mother.

Police said Sho Fujita, whose occupation is unknown, stabbed his mother on Friday night and then holed up in the family-run kissaten (Japanese-style cafe) next-door at around 9:30 p.m., Fuji TV reported.

According to police, at around 8:30 p.m., Fujita’s 74-year-old father called 110 and said his wife had been stabbed by their son. When police arrived, Fujita, with a knife, had already barricaded himself in the cafe.

Fujita's mother was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Fujita was eventually talked into coming out of the cafe by his father and police at around 11:50 p.m.

Whether someone is employed is critical for understanding crimes. It’s as critical for understanding crimes as knowing a persons age is critical to understanding what that person is saying in a new interview.

Another hikkikomori who got told to stop being a parasite and find a job. He couldn't bear the thought of actually having to do something so he killed the person who he had been a burden on his whole life.

Now he still won't have to do anything else, and he will still be a burden, only from now on he will be a burden on us

I am impressed that you were able to deduce all of this from the brief description of the occurrence.
