The report stated that on Monday night, July 9, Okuzumi slashed his girlfriend with a knife on her arms and legs as he arrived at her home. She was then rushed to the hospital but died on Wednesday morning, July 11.

Okuzumi was later sent to prosecutors for a possible filing of a case of manslaughter. He was quoted by police as saying: “I used a knife to stab her, but I did not intend to kill.”

Authorities are investigating the incident to see if there has been trouble in the victim and suspect’s relationship. Katrina Hallare/JB
