Japanese woman arrested for killing 6-year-old son

(THE DAILY YOMIURI/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A woman has been arrested on suspicion of strangling her 6-year-old son in their apartment in western Tokyo, apparently after she became wracked with anxiety, according to police. The woman, Yuko Numata, later attempted to commit suicide by slashing her wrist, the police added. Numata, 44, allegedly killed her son, Akihisa, earlier this month at their apartment in a public housing complex in Tachikawa. A police autopsy found the boy had been strangled. Numata was quoted by the police as saying: 'I choked my son on impulse because I suddenly felt an increased sense of anxiety. I tried to kill myself by cutting my wrist.'
