Police arrested a 47-year-old architect from Yaizu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Wednesday night in connection with the apparent slaying of Mieko Kubo, 52, a Tokyo gallery owner whose dismembered body and body parts were found in a Shizuoka Prefecture harbor last month.

Kazutoshi Oishi, owner of an architecture firm in Yaizu, has been initially arrested on charges of dismembering and dumping a body, police said, adding that they are now interrogating him to determine if he murdered her.
