Police said Tuesday they have arrested a 38-year-old man who presented himself at a police station and confessed to the murder of his 1-year-old daughter.
According to police, Takahiro Fujimoto from Toyonaka in Osaka, dropped his 14-month-old daughter Ai on the ground on Sept 21, causing her to sustain injuries from which she later died. TBS reported that at the time of the incident, Fujimoto told paramedics that the child had sustained the injuries while he attempted to dislodge some food on which she was choking.
However, on Monday, Fujimoto turned himself in at a police station and confessed that he had dropped his daughter on the floor deliberately while in a rage due to her crying. Police say Fujimoto is to be charged with manslaughter.
