According to police, Ken Takahashi, a company employee who lives in Soka, Saitama Prefecture, is accused of using a cord to strangle Nozomi Narita early on the morning of March 12 at her apartment in Nerima Ward, Tokyo, Kyodo News reported. Police said an autopsy revealed that Narita was pregnant at the time of her death.

Police said Takahashi has admitted to killing Narita and quoted him as saying that he hadn’t told her he was married and that he had led her to believe he would marry her. Police said he told them the two started arguing when he told Narita he was married and that he strangled her.
