Police in Nagano City have arrested a 55-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she stabbed her 58-year-old husband with a kitchen knife at their home.

According to police, Mirie Che, an unemployed woman of Korean nationality, stabbed her husband in the stomach at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. Fuji TV reported that the husband was taken to hospital and was in a stable condition on Thursday.

Police said Che has admitted to stabbing her husband but denied any intent to kill him.

Meanwhile, local media reported that since the start of this year, the woman had previously consulted with Nagano prefectural police multiple times regarding quarrels with her husband. Police had even visited their residence on several occasions.

Police suspect that some trouble between the married couple sparked the incident and are swiftly investigating the motive behind the crime.

Is there another reason to put a blade in someone's stomach ?

So why was it necessary to show she is of Korean ancestry in the story?

I reckon that goes without saying. At the risk of being labeled sexist, you have to wonder what kind of a##hole this guy was to push his so far as to attack him with a knife.

@kolohe, it didn't say that she was of Korean ancestry, but of Korean nationality. That's a fair datum to include in the story.

That's a fair datum to include in the story.

How so? What, in any way, does her nationality have the least bit to do with the rest of the story about her stabbing her husband? Same thing with her employment status (another trope of J-media). What does her not having a job have to do with the stabbing?

I'll tell you. In both instances.... not a darn thing. It doesn't figure into the suspected cause of the stabbing, it has nothing to do with how she stabbed him, where, or with what implement.
