Police have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 6-month-old daughter at their home in Sabae, Fukui Prefecture.

Fuji TV reported Monday that the man, who has been named as Yuji Yagi, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of violently shaking his baby daughter’s head at their apartment in June of last year. The girl was taken to hospital unconscious and eventually passed away in December.

The assault was uncovered when doctors could not find any obvious physical injuries and reported the child’s death as suspicious. Police questioned Yagi, who admitted to abusing his daughter, Fuji reported.

Yagi was arrested on a charge on manslaughter. Police said they are planning to investigate whether the girl was routinely being abused.
