Police in Naha, Okinawa, have arrested a 29-year-old woman on suspicion of killing her 2-month-old daughter in November, 2015.
According to police, Minami Niigaki, who now lives in Naha, used to live in an apartment house in Ginowan where she allegedly abused and killed her daughter Haruna. Fuji TV quoted police as saying she took her unconscious child to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Doctors noticed several bruises on the baby’s body, and the cause of death was determined to be due to head injuries.
Police began an investigation based on a report from a hospital, and asked the mother to come in for voluntary questioning on Wednesday of this week. Police said Niigaki has admitted to abusing her daughter.© Japan Today
