Police in Maebashi, Gunma Prefecture, said Wednesday they have arrested a 51-year-old unemployed woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she strangled her 14-year-old daughter at their apartment. 

The daughter is unconscious and in a critical condition in hospital, Fuji TV reported. She had just started her third semester at junior high school on Monday. 

According to police, the woman strangled her daughter with a cell phone charging cable at around 4:10 p.m. on Tuesday. She then called her husband who lives and works outside the prefecture, telling him what she had done and that their daughter wasn’t moving. The husband called 119 and the girl was rushed to hospital.

Police said the woman has admitted to the charge and quoted her as saying she had a bad relationship with her daughter.

"she had a bad relationship with her daughter." Just imaging how much worse it's gonna be now... and what precisely is the differewnce between "an unemployed woman" and "a housewife" in the Japanese media context?

Horrible. The poor girl who looked to her mother for love, understanding and tenderness. How heartbreaking.

She has a bad relationship with her daughter so she tried to kill her? I guess she never once thought that she is the reason she had a bad relationship with her.

Thats the second attempted murder of a family member today. On a roll!

I hope the girl recovers completely and the mom gets the help she needs while she spends a very long time in jail

Lock her up for the maximum amount of time possible. But, I think we know she'll just go back home to her daughter whom she 'has a bad relationship with'.
