JAKARTA - A retired Japanese teacher and his wife were stabbed to death in their home in Indonesia by a disgruntled former domestic worker, police said Friday.
Yasuwo Hara, 69, was stabbed in the chest and his wife, Mizue, 67, in the neck and stomach around 9:00 pm (10 pm local time) Thursday at their home in Ciputat, southern Jakarta, police said.
Police arrested the couple's recently sacked gardener, 22-year-old Asep, a spokesman said. Another suspect was also believed to have been arrested but this has not been confirmed.
The killer reportedly snuck into the couple's house through the garage and attacked them as they were eating dinner.
