17 Comments

Police in Machida, Tokyo, said Sunday they have arrested a 43-year-old woman on suspicion of murder after she drugged her 61-year-old boyfriend and then stabbed him.

According to police, Chinatsu Sato, of unknown occupation, has admitted to stabbing Tomio Arashi, who lived nearby, at least 10 times in the chest and back with a kitchen knife at around 11:50 p.m. on Friday at her apartment, Fuji TV reported.

After stabbing Arashi, Sato called 110 and said she had killed someone. Arashi was taken to hospital, where his death was confirmed before dawn on Saturday.

Police said Sato told them she slipped a sleep-inducing drug into Arashi’s wine and when he dozed off, she stabbed him. She was quoted as saying she wanted to end their relationship. She said she been contemplating killing Arashi about a week ago but decided the only way she could do it was to stab him while he was asleep. A blood-stained knife was found in the room.

Err... yeah, killing will do that. She could not think of another way?

I understand it is up to the suspect if they want to talk or not but find it interesting that she has 1. Made admissions about stabbing him and 2. That these are made public even before a court appearance (I assume).

The easiest way would have been sorry but I don't think were going to get along any more so I am calling it a day on our relationship, goodbye. now she's going to do a lot of time in a jail!

Who the? How the? What the? Either this woman is a completely delusional psycho or the boyfriend was a complete butt hole that pushed her to want to kill him. Perhaps it’s a bit of a both.

Ending a relationship is usually never easy, but, uhhh... killing the person to end it? Does this woman have an IQ above 20? I wonder how long it's going to take her to realize as crappy as being with her 61 year old boyfriend may have been that prison probably isn't much of step up. Hope she gets life to realize it, especially since it was premeditated. But, given how things go here, I reckon she'll only get 4 years or so, if even.

Yep, the obvious solution, you want to end a relationship that is no longer working so naturally you turn to cold blooded, calculated and carefully premeditated murder!

I wholly and totally fail to understand the mind set of people like this, there isn’t even a cat-in-hells chance of getting away with it.

Not sure I follow that. What's age got to do with it?

Premeditated first degree murder. I wonder if she will hang.

That's weird. Killing without premeditation during a quarrel, then you go to police, I can get. But why would you prepare a murder and then go to declare it ?

 I wonder if she will hang.

Not for killing one time.

She could have just said goodbye and walked away, BUT she was serious about braking up ain't no getting back together from this. Only in Japan ..

There's nothing to justify murder however, here's my thought..

If, she had tried to break up with him, multiple times, but he was not understanding that No means No.. and if he was being a stalker, or if he was threatening her, or if he was harrassing her, and she was so stressed out and felt there was no other way out than eliminating him.

Again, I don't think anything would justify murder (unless your own child/family was being in danger or self defense) but somehow I don't think this was a simple "I want to break up so let's kill him".
