Woman arrested over murder of man she lived with


Police in Osaka have arrested a 33-year-old woman on suspicion of killing a 24-year-old man who lived with her at her apartment.

Police said Yuri Tanaka, a part-time worker, is accused of fatally stabbing Kyo Matsui, whose occupation is unknown, at her apartment in Naniwa Ward at around 2 a.m. on Sunday, Kyodo News reported. Police said Tanaka called 119 about 10 minutes later and said she had stabbed her boyfriend.

Matsui was taken to hospital where he died about two hours later due to loss of blood from a knife wound to his back.

Police quoted Tanaka as saying she didn’t mean to kill Matsui and that she didn’t think the knife wound had been deep enough to kill him. Police said Tanaka told them she stabbed Matsui after they had argued.

No job and living with a older woman. The man was probably leeching off the woman

Maybe non job! maybe gambling problems or cheating!

It never ceases to amaze me that some people can be stabbed many multiple times and survive while others just once and they are done for. No-one deserves to die like this...

Another person stabbing someone while apparently not meaning to kill them.

Why are you people speculating? No job, leaching, cheating, gambling, living with an older woman… so what? Doesn’t justify murder.

I can't believe the police are going to buy her alibi. And she stabbed him in the back too.

I can't believe the police are going to buy her alibi.

I don’t think they will because she doesn’t seem to have one. Just an admission of guilt with an oft-used denial of intent.

Many couples are like that, where the guy is freeloading from a nice lady.

My neighbor, for example, a young couple - he stays at home while she goes to work almost every day.

However, she shouldn't do what she did just get rid of the guy and find a new, better one!

A 9 years older girlfriend? he probably never seen it coming or he would have swerved or even run away and protected himself, no one really know what happened and never will, selfish girlfriend killed him for love or $.

My first ex was about this much older than me and age wasn’t the issue….and we both worked.

She didnt mean to kill him

She accidentally stabbed him in the back .

Yeah right ?

She's a part-time worker but his occupation was unknown.

Either he's unemployed or She's hiding his real occupation ?

Sounds a little fishy to me !

I really hope she gets punished and thrown in jail like the filthy criminal that she is. Or maybe the death sentence.

Murderers should not go unpunished.

I think she's had enough of him. Very likely he's lazy, unemployed. infidelity, etc, etc.

Lots of assumptions about the guy. For all we know she could be violently jealous and could have been set off when he said hello to a neighbor.
