A 44-year-old woman was arrested for attempted murder on Friday, after she allegedly stabbed her 51-year-old lover while in his car in Shiojiri City.
Police said Takako Shirane, an unemployed resident of Niiza City in Saitama Prefecture, got into an argument with the man, a resident of Nara Prefecture, at around 4 a.m. Friday while inside his car parked about 1.5 kilometers from the Nagano Expressway. She is accused of stabbing him in the chest and face, inflicting injuries expected to take a month to heal.
Shirane drove her own car back to Saitama, and was arrested later Friday after the man gave police her details. She has admitted to stabbing him and said she didn't care if he died.© News reports
