Police in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, said Wednesday they have arrested a 31-year-old woman for suffocating her 4-month-old daughter to death.
According to police, Yumi Suzuki used a blanket to stop her daughter Ayaka from crying at her home sometime between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
TBS reported that Suzuki called police herself and said she had killed her daughter because she wouldn't stop crying.
Police said no external injuries were found on the infant's body.
