The wife of a police officer was arrested Friday on suspicion of strangling her husband to death. According to police, Eiko Ohashi strangled her husband Kazuo, who was a police sergeant at Chiba West police headquarters, at their home in Yachimata City, and then called police.
For the past year, Kazuo had been on extended leave due to illness, and was under medical care at his home. According to police, Eiko has admitted to strangling her husband, but has given no motive. A police spokesman said authorities are currently investigating the possibility that the woman could have been asked to commit the crime by a third party, but gave no further details on that point.© News reports
