Police in Monbetsu, Hokkaido, said Sunday they have arrested an unemployed 23-year-old man on suspicion of murdering his 93-year-old great-grandmother at her home last year.
Toshie Morita was found stabbed to death in her two-story home at around 8:30 a.m. on the morning of Oct 18, 2015. She was found lying face-up in her pajamas in her bedroom and had died from stab wounds to her neck.
The door was locked; however, a sliding door on the balcony was not locked. She was found by a friend with whom she was supposed to go on a day trip that day.
Police said that Morita's great-grandson, Ko Igarashi, who lives in Sapporo, has admitted to killing Morita and stealing money from her purse, Fuji TV reported.© Japan Today
