Kanagawa Prefectural Police have arrested a 27-year-old woman over the alleged stabbing of her husband in Isehara City, reports Fuji News Network

At just past 4:00 a.m. on Monday, Erina Hayashi allegedly used a knife to stab her husband, 38, in the abdomen at their residence.

“I’ve been stabbed,” the suspect’s husband said over the telephone in alerting emergency services to the scene.

The man was transported to a hospital with the knife still protruding from his body. His condition is not considered life-threatening, the Isehara Police Station said.

Upon her arrest on suspicion of attempted murder, Hayashi said, “I didn’t mean to stab [him] in the abdomen. I intended to slash his leg, but I wound up stabbing him in the abdomen.”

Prior to the incident, the suspect got into a dispute with her husband, during which time he choked her with his hands. The incident took place after she retrieved the knife from the kitchen, police said.

Police are now investigating the circumstances that led to the incident. - tokyoreporter.com

淡々とした表情で捜査員に連れられ、警察署から出てくる女。

22日朝、神奈川・伊勢原市で現行犯逮捕された、林絵里菜容疑者(27)。

その容疑は...。

絵里菜容疑者は22日午前4時すぎ、自宅アパートで38歳の夫の腹部を包丁で刺し、殺害しようとして現行犯逮捕された。

事件は、刺された夫本人の「妻に包丁で刺された」という通報で発覚した。

腹部に包丁が刺さったままの状態で搬送された夫。

重傷だったが、命に別条はないという。

当時の状況について、近所の人は「救急車、パトカー、そういう警報の音はたくさん鳴っていました。サイレンは頻繁に鳴っていました」と話した。

なぜ、絵里奈容疑者は犯行に及んだのか。

その理由が、口論から夫が絵里奈容疑者の首を絞め、その後、絵里奈容疑者がキッチンから包丁を持ち出し、夫の腹を刺したのだという。

調べに対し、絵里奈容疑者は「腹を刺すつもりはなかった。足を切りつけるつもりが、腹部に刺さってしまった」と話した。

警察は、口論の原因などについて調べを進めている。 - FNNプライムオンライン
