TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Police say a woman threatened to stab her husband over an argument about money to move to Japan before she allegedly killed their two children with a meat cleaver in a suburban Phoenix apartment.
Tempe police say 40-year-old Yui Inoue remains jailed on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder.
It was unclear Sunday if Inoue has a lawyer yet.
Police said the woman primarily speaks Japanese and had an interpreter for their interviews.
Authorities say Inoue drove to a police station about 7 a.m. Saturday and told officers she was hearing voices telling her to kill her children.
Police say a 7-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl were found dead in the apartment.
Their names weren’t immediately released.
