Police in Osaka said Monday they have arrested a 53-year-old man on suspicion of killing his neighbor in an apartment building in Higashinari Ward.
According to police, sometime on Saturday, the suspect is accused of entering the apartment of his nextdoor neighbor, a man in his early 60s, and repeatedly bashing him in the head with a blunt object, TV Asahi reported Monday.
According to police, a Pomeranian dog belonging to the victim, was barking, which led to the discovery of the body on his bed. Moreover, investigators found blood on both the doorknob of the room, and all over the walls.
Police said the suspect has denied all charges and said he has never met the victim.© Japan Today
