Police on Wednesday arrested an 83-year-old man for allegedly beating his wife to death at their home in Okaya, Nagano Prefecture.
According to police, Katsumi Sekiguchi beat his wife Sachiko, 80, about the face and stomach several times at around 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Fuji TV reported that a neighbor called police, saying that he could hear the couple fighting and it sounded like it was getting out of control.
Police rushed to the house and found Sachiko unconscious. She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead about one hour later.
Sekiguchi has admitted killing his wife but has so far given no motive.© Japan Today
