If the man was sobbing in a similiar incident, would this be reported in the news?

Not particularly English expert, but isn’t this sentence weird?

Police said the couple know each other.

Yup, women can get away with the awful crimes by sobbing or by simply claiming she has been abused etc. no evidence would be required. Since she cries, she must be telling the truth for our brain death society (Clarification: this isn’t referring to just japan, but it’s a worldwide fact).

She probably felt she had a reason to do this... crime of passion? The crying could be cathartic.
