Kagoshima prefectural police have sent papers on a 77-year-old man to prosectors after he was arrested on suspicion of murdering his 53-year-old son on Friday.
According to police reports, Tsutomu Sato fatally stabbed his son Akiome with a knife on a street near their home at around 7 p.m., Sankei Shimbun reported. The victim died from stab wounds inflicted to his stomach shortly after arrival at a hospital.
According to multiple eyewitnesses, Sato was carrying what appeared to be a Japanese sword after the stabbing. Neighbors also told local media that the father and son often argued, and their voices could be heard in the neighborhood.© Japan Today
