Saitama woman arrested after stabbing lover in Nagano car park

28 Comments

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.

She has admitted to stabbing him and said she didn’t care if he died.

Yikes. She just happened to carry a knife with her in case they got into an argument?

Well it doesn't actually say in the article at the moment that she used a knife. Even if she did it doesn't say whether she'd been carrying it around.

Still, the mind boggles. Whatever she used, be it a scalpel or a pair of nail scissors or a pencil, she must be nuts. Doesn't matter how badly he's treated her, or how cruelly he's dumped her, she doesn't have any right to do that.

Unless he announced that he'd infected her with HIV deliberately, then perhaps she might have reason to go off the deep end like that.

Shouldn't the correct title read "Ex-lover"

It sounds so romantic - two lovers parked in their car - love is in the air and apparently so is a knife! What ever happened to Cupid shooting you with an arrow????

Sounds like quite a long distance relationship: Saitama --> Nara --> Nagano. Maybe they mostly just Skyped each other instead of arranging for face-to-face meetings. Not such a Merry Christmas or a Happy New Year for either of these troubled folks...

It must of been the holiday season blues. She didnt get the present she wanted for Christmas and she is also from Saitama. No new news here.

Saitama chicks don't mess around. + maybe she wasn't able to get a "Lucky Bag" like the other girls.

Moral: Don't break-up with a Saitama girl in a car around the Holidays.

"Takako Shirane, an unemployed resident..."

If she was married, she wouldn't be labeled "unemployed," lol.

Love and passion in Saitama...

most probably he deserved to be stabbed. Beware of a woman in passion.

Most people here aim for the neck when stabbing. She had a bad aim.

ogiedogie,

It's hard to shoot an arrow inside a car, knife is easier.

Lowly - "It's hard to shoot an arrow inside a car, knife is easier"

Lowly you have a POINT there!!

Hm, she is named because she stabbed her ex-lover, but he is unnamed.

IMHO she couldn't find a good job, but found a lover who couldn't commit instead, a man who prefers to remain anonymous because it would ruin his name.

This is no romance; this is a social tragedy.

easy, he's married, she lives off him! he spent the holidays with his wife....she's fed up waiting for texts and hushed calls..... end of mystery!!

I'm sure her ex-boyfriend got the point.

The quote to kick off 2010.

She has admitted to stabbing him and said she didn’t care if he died.

Happy New Year!

Watch them Saitama chicks!

LoveUSA - He deserved to be stabbed? I'd hate to piss you off. What could he have done to deserve possible death? Break up with her?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Wow. He must have really made her mad if she didn't care if he died! That thin line between love and hate...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

totally premeditated, she hated this dudes guts because he was seeing someone else and had all this pent up stress from being unemployed as well... not a good combination.

Come on people this is "love Japan style"

I guess he was not much of a lover, and they met in a car, maybe he was too cheap to spring for the love Hotel.

Hes 51 and shes 44 I can imagine the passion there.

Oh and 4:00am in the morning there`s a case, she was sleep deprived at the time.

Cuddles2009 are you saying that people in their 40's and 50's cannot have passion in a relationship? Geez!

More than likely at 4am there was booze involoved also.

Stabbed him in the chest and face; now that's very ugly and personal. Did she have scissors in her purse or did she bring along a knife?

LoveUSA: No one deserves to be stabbed. Would you be saying the same thing if it had been a man attempting to kill a woman?

I just read today's story of the woman who tried to kill her husband. Seems like some women have a lot of pent up resentment and anger out there. If you're unhappy with your man, move on!!

Suddenly all those enka come to mind about love lost.
