Police said Monday they have arrested a 61-year-old woman for allegedly beating her 94-year-old father to death with an iron at his home in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, on Sunday.
According to Ehime prefectural police, Yasuko Arimitsu -- who lived in Sayama City, Saitama Prefecture -- had been staying at her father's home since May, leaving her child and husband in Saitama.
TV news reports said Arimitsu's father was in good mental and physical health. Arimitsu's older brother, who lives nearby, rushed to the scene after receiving a cryptic message from his sister, who reportedly told him what she had done.
Police said that Arimitsu has so far given no motive for the crime.© Japan Today
