A 51-year-old woman and her 30-year-old daughter have been arrested on suspicion of killing the woman's older sister at their home in Kobe, police said Monday.

According to police, Shizue Nakahara and her oldest daughter Akiko beat Shizue's sister Kazue Kawazura with a vacuum cleaner tube about the face and body on March 18. Fuji TV reported that Nakahara called 119 on Sunday to report that her sister was unconscious in her futon and that her body was cold.

Kawazura was taken to hospital where she was confirmed dead.

Police said Nakahara and her daughter have admitted to beating Kawazura, who was mentally disabled, and said they had been abusing the woman since last autumn because she constantly made a mess when they fed her.

This really sucks. What did they do? Tag-team on the sister?

Sunday to report that her sister was unconscious in her futon and that her body was cold.

Body was cold? More like ya'll are two cold-blooded killers.

there is no excuse for murder... but i wonder if these women were stretched thin carrying for a mentally disabled person. how long had they been caring for her, and how serious was her disability? some are quick to pass sentence on these women, but there may be more to the story then we know.

That's really all I need to know. She was disabled, and the 2 of them beat her to death. I'm sure there's more to this story, but I can't imagine what it would take for me to sympathize with these two

They should had at least patience to care for the women since they knew that the woman had a mental disorder. She making a mess is not a reason to beat her up and eventually kill her. Family is Family, mentally stable or not you should care for your family and treat him/her right.

This two should be in jail and be locked up for the rest of their lives..

They never should have taken the older sister's life for any reason whatsoever. RIP.

"Vacuum cleaner tube does not hurt ..!! This mother and her daughter should be locked and lashed with rubber tube every day"

I think they would have used the METAL TUBE section. And they would have needed to hit her VERY HARD and VERY OFTEN in order to kill her.

This is not FATAL ABUSE...

In a civilized country this would be called premeditated MURDER!!

sad & scary, my guess is the two were at their breaking point(not saying its an excuse!), like I have been saying for ages we will continue to see more & MORE of this type of thing, no where near the peak that's still many years off.

Japanese society has not put near enough thought or effort into problems of people growing old or with the disabled..........we are going to here more & more of this stuff sadly

nakanoguy: "there is no excuse for murder... but i wonder if these women were stretched thin carrying for a mentally disabled person."

Ah, so then there IS an excuse... as long as you're a woman stretched thin.

"some are quick to pass sentence on these women, but there may be more to the story then we know."

Some call a spade a spade: two women plotted and murdered another woman. On the contrary, some people are quick to let it go because it's a woman. If it were the woman's husband or father who beat her with a vacuum tube until she was dead, would you be so quick to consider it a possible justification?

They murdered her. They are therefore murderers. End of story.
