One child died and another was seriously injured after their mother stabbed them with a kitchen knife at their Saitama home earlier this month, police said Saturday.

According to police, 34-year-old nursing home employee Atsuko Kurihara was arrested for murder and attempted murder after stabbing her sons at her home in the early hours of Dec 19, Fuji TV reported. Her 5-month-old son was killed in the attack, while her 2-year-old son sustained serious injuries.
