When jealous, murderous wives become too old for knives, guns, and bombs, household items come in handy.


In Japan, a 61-year-old woman was reported to have repeatedly beaten her husband with a coffee cup, resulting in serious injuries that eventually led to his death, the Asahi Shimhun reported.

The housewife, Emiko Hirose, admitted to her fit of rage that apparently stemmed from her discovery of her husband’s affair with a woman Emiko “hates.”

Seventy-year-old Yasuo Hirose, who served as an honorary professor at Yokohama National University, was allegedly beaten 10 times in the face last Sunday afternoon. He was rushed to the hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

Emiko was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

So much for “till death do us part.”
