According to police, Chinatsu Ikeda is suspected of strangling her son Yusei to death with a rope at their residence on Monday evening, Fuji TV reported.

Ikeda called police at 7 p.m. and told them she had killed her son. When paramedics arrived at the scene, they confirmed Yusei’s death.

Ikeda, who works part-time, was quoted by police as saying that her son had suffered from a developmental disorder and she was distressed about how to raise him.
