TOKYO —

Police said Saturday they have arrested a 43-year-old woman in connection with the death of her 3-year-old foster child on Aug 24 last year. Police said the girl—identified as Miyuki Watanabe—was found at the foot of a spiral staircase in the Suginami apartment block in which she lived. She was taken to hospital, but was pronounced dead 90 minmutes later.

According to a TBS news report, the girl’s foster mother, who is a voice actress, initially told police that she had fallen. However, after hospital staff found bruises on the girl’s head and body that were not consistent with a fall, police began to interview third parties in an attempt to build a case against the woman.
