Police arrested a senior high school student Tuesday on charges of stabbing an 18-year-old classmate to death in Mie Prefecture on Monday.

The male student, also 18, admitted to stabbing his female classmate, Miu Hada, saying he was asked by the girl to kill her, the police said. The girl did not have the external injuries that normally exist when a person defends oneself, investigators said Wednesday.
