Police on Monday arrested a 25-year-old man for fatally stabbing his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend at her apartment in Kyoto City. Shohei Kitamura was arrested for allegedly stabbing Mariko Ishikawa around 5:40 a.m. He turned himself in at a local police station at noon.
The victim was found bleeding in the corridor outside her apartment by a neighbor who had heard a scream. Police found a knife with bloodstains in the suspect's apartment.
Police said their investigations showed that Ishikawa ended the relationship at the end of last year, but Kitamura had been repeatedly urging her to get back together with him.© Japan Today
