Police in Hirakata, Osaka Prefecture, have arrested a 26-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of killing his 19-year-old girlfriend at her apartment on Saturday.

Police said Masaru Nishimitsu, who lives in Akashi, Hyogo Prefecture, is accused of stabbing to death Karen Watanabe, a university student, Kyodo News reported.

So, what does him not paying his hotel bill have to do with killing an innocent lady? I’m more focused on him, not this story.

Scumbag they should have left him to go to sleep permanently!

I'm going to go ahead and assume she was breaking up with him.

@chico.

Chances are he was planning on killing himself after killing his lady friend. Expecting to be dead, he probably didn't care whether or not he could pay the hotel bill, but when he wasn't dead or changed his mind he realised he was in a bit of a pickle.
