Feb. 10, 2015 – CHIBA —

Police in Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture, said Tuesday they have arrested a 36-year-old woman on suspicion of killing her two daughters aged 4 and 1.

TBS reported that police were called to the home by the children’s father who found their bodies just after 3 p.m. Monday. His wife, Rika Makino, had called him at his workplace to tell him what she had done, police said.

When police arrived, Makino was standing at the entrance of her home and admitted she had just strangled to death her daughters Renoa, 4, and Reisa, 1.

Police quoted Makino as saying she had become tired of parenting and although she had intended to kill herself as well, she had been unable to go through with it, TBS reported.
