Police said Monday they have arrested a woman after her husband allegedly caught her trying to strangle to death one of her children in the night at their home in Kumagaya, Saitama Prefecture.

According to police, 29-year-old Miho Shinohara was asleep with her husband and four children when the incident took place at around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Fuji TV reported. Shinohara’s husband awoke to find her strangling their eldest son, a 4-year-old boy, with an electrical cable, police said.

The couple’s son was taken to hospital where doctors say his condition is not serious. Shinohara has reportedly confessed to attempted murder, although police say her motive is still under investigation.
