Police in Taketoyo, Aichi Prefecture, have arrested a 24-year-old company employee on suspicion of killing his 18-year-old girlfriend in a love hotel.
According to police, the suspect, Taiki Ueno, strangled his girlfriend Mizuki Honda to death in a hotel room on Saturday afternoon. Fuji TV reported that a hotel employee found the victim's body on the bed and called police. Ueno was found hiding on the roof of the hotel.
Police said Ueno has admitted to killing Honda, a high school student, by strangling her with a thin cord. The pair had checked into the hotel on Friday evening.
Police said Honda's friends told then that she had recently spoken about breaking up with Ueno, whom she met in 2015 at the maid cafe where she worked part-time.© Japan Today
