TOKYO —
Police said Monday they have arrested a 41-year-old woman for allegedly attempting to murder her 5-year-old son after he was found with his hands and wrists bound, wrapped in polyethylene bags, in their home in Tokyo on Sunday.

The woman, who has been named as Shizu Shigeta, allegedly bound and wrapped the boy, her third son, in the living room of their Nakameguro home she shared with her sons and husband, Fuji TV reported. Police said Shigeta’s husband found his son lying limp on the floor and took him to a hospital. Doctors say the boy has yet to regain consciousness.

During police questioning, Shigeta was quoted by police as admitting to the charge and said the boy wouldn’t clean up after she told him to, so she punished him.
