A Japanese woman is accused of beating her 79-year-old husband to death with a “stick-like object”.
The suspect identified as Yoshiko Suzuki, also aged 79, was arrested following the assault she allegedly carried out on Sunday over the a row the two had 40 years ago, Inquirer.net provides.
According to the reports circulating in the media, the woman explained why the quarrel had started:
“My husband lost his job about 40 years ago because of an affair with a woman. We have often quarrelled over this matter.”
The spouses’ 43-year-old daughter, who lived with her parents, was out when the tragedy occurred. Suzuki was arrested the next day, the police spokesman told AFP.
A similar incident took place last August, when an elderly woman battered her 70-year-old husband to death with a coffee cup over cheating.
