Son charged after beating father to death

Date Posted: 2012-01-27

A 26-year-old Urasoe City man is in jail today, charged with murder after beating his father to death after becoming angry.

Urasoe City Police arrested Masatomo Higa on charges of inflicting bodily injury resulting in death. They say Higa struck the father repeatedly in the face. Higa has confessed, telling investigators “I quarreled with him and lost my temper. I trampled on my father’s belly and hit his face tens of times.” Urasoe police say Higa attacked his father for about 30 minutes in their Urasoe City apartment.

Higa telephoned for an ambulance the following day, after his father collapsed in his bedroom. An ambulance attendance confirmed the death at the apartment. A judicial autopsy concluded the cause of death was acute subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Urasoe City Police say the quarrel began because the entrance was locked when the younger Higa returned home after an evening out, forcing him to break a window to enter the apartment. They say Higa and his father lived alone in the apartment.
