A woman admitted to killing her husband because she was sick and tired of taking care of his daily needs, according to police in Japan.

Hokkaido police said that they have arrested 81-year-old Fujiko Maeda, after being accused of killing her 80-year-old husband, who was identified as Minoru.

Maeda has been charged with murder.

According to the police investigation, Maeda and Minoru got married many years ago and lived together in the same home.

Recently, Minoru became sick, and he was unable to feed himself or take a bath.

At first Maeda fed and bathed her husband every day.

On Wednesday night, Maeda became fed up of tending to her sick husband.

She stomped on his head and chest until he fell unconscious.

On Thursday morning, Maeda called a friend to say that she found her husband lying unconscious on the floor.

The friend rushed over to the home and called for help.

Minoru was taken to a nearby hospital, where he pronounced dead.

An autopsy revealed that Minoru died as a result of internal bleeding.

During questioning, Maeda told police that she no longer wanted to take care of her husband so she killed him.
