A woman in her 30s jumped to her death from the roof of her apartment building in Tokyo after apparently killing her 7-month-old son, police said Tuesday.

According to police, the woman’s husband returned home from work at around 8 p.m. Monday and found the body of his wife lying beside the car park of their apartment complex in Kokubunji.
