Police said Saturday they have arrested a 41-year-old woman over the death of her 2-year-old son after it was revealed that she sat on his face and chest.

The woman, who has been named as Kimie Takashima, is accused of sitting on her son Yuki at their Nerima apartment in the early hours of Friday morning, Fuji TV reported. She called her ex-husband who called 110. The boy was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said that Takashima had visited a child consultation center three times since last December because she believed her son’s mental development was slower than average.
