CHIBA (Kyodo) A 48-year-old man arrested in a robbery case has indicated he may have been involved in the murder of a 21-year-old college student in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, in October, investigative sources said Monday.

The man, arrested in mid-November in connection with a robbery, closely resembles a man in security camera footage withdrawing cash from the bank account of Yukari Ogino, a Chiba University senior, a day before she was found slain in her gutted apartment, the sources said.
