A Japanese wife went to extreme measures after finding out her husband was having an affair.

In 2013, a 61-year old woman named Emiko Hirose made headlines for murdering her husband, 70-year-old Yasuo Hirose, in a gruesome manner. The crime scene took place in Isehara, Kanagawa Prefecture, after Yasuo returned home.

What made the case unique was Emiko’s unlikely weapon of choice. Instead of the usual gun or knife, she used an object that can be found in every household—a coffee cup.

I went mad and hit him more than 10 times with a cup.

The simple and seemingly harmless ceramic cup became the downfall of Yasuo. The perpetrator called the police a few minutes after the murder and stated that she had just fought with her husband.

I had a quarrel with my husband and now he’s lying unconscious.

— Emiko Hirose

She later admitted that she was the cause of his death. Her anger apparently reached its peak after finding out that he had cheated on her with someone she greatly disliked. She added that their relationship was rocky due to her husband’s affair and drunk habits.

He had an affair with a woman I hate…we argued because my husband had been cheating on me and got drunk every day.

— Emiko Hirose

Yasuo Hirose was an honorary professor at Yokohama National University. In 1991, he became a professor in the engineering department specializing in electronics and was named a professor emeritus 18 years later.
