Police said Wednesday they are looking for a 41-year-old Sendai man after his mother, with whom he shared a house, was found stabbed to death.
According to police, the woman, who has been identified as Michiko Otsuka, 68, was found by her third son, 38, who visited the house at around 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday. He told police he found his mother bleeding from a stab wound to the chest. A bloodstained knife, believed to be the murder weapon, was found next to the body.
Police said that they are searching for the woman's eldest son, who they believe may have some information about the circumstances leading up to the murder, but that nobody has been able to contact the man yet.© Compiled from news reports
