OSAKA — A couple were found stabbed to death in their Osaka apartment Thursday after their 5-year-old son called for an ambulance, local police said, speculating that the case may be rooted in a domestic dispute. They were identified as Hisashi Yoshida, 34, and his wife, Chiaki, 33.

According to investigators, the boy called for an ambulance at around 7:45 a.m., saying his father and mother were “all bloody” in their apartment in Miyakojima Ward.
