Police in Fukui on Friday arrested a 23-year-old woman and her 51-year-old father on suspicion of burning the body of her dead newborn son in a park in December.

According to police, the infant’s mother, identified as Momoko Miyanaga, and her father, Yoshihiro Miyanaga, have admitted to the charges.

Momoko was quoted by police as saying that she gave birth at her home in November 2010. She said the child died immediately and that she hid the body for nearly a year in her room. After she told her her father in December 2011, he burned the body in a park and brought the bones back home, according to Jiji Press.

Police on Friday found bones believed to be the remains of the infant. The family of six lived in a big two-story house, local media reported.
