Man arrested for trying to kill wife

Date Posted: 2011-10-21

Telling police he’s not sure why he even did it, a 37-year-old Naha City man is under arrest and charged with attempted murder for slashing his wife’s neck with a utility knife.

The unidentified man has been charged with murderous intent after using the knife during an altercation police say took place between 10 p.m. October 12th and 11:42 a.m. the following day. “I injured her, but I didn’t have a motive to kill her,” the man told arresting officers.

Police say the man, who lives in the city’s Izumizaki district, went to the hospital regularly with his wife because of mental troubles, so police are investigating the man’s legal competency. A helper who visited the couple’s home on the 13th noticed something strange, and was the one who called police via a firefighting emergency team. The wife’s injuries were not deemed life-threatening.
