Divorcee destroys ex's $1m violin collection in Japan”

A woman has been arrested after allegedly destroying her ex-partner's vast violin collection during bitter divorce proceedings.

Midori Kawamiya, from Nagoya, Tokyo, is accused of breaking into her ex-husband's house, between January 20 and February 19, 2014, and smashing the craftsman's instruments, collectively worth 105 million yen (NZ$1.3 million).

Her 62-year-old former husband is said to have been both a maker and collector of violins. The damaged violins were made or collected by him and included an Italian violin worth about ¥50 million.

The violent incident took place at a time when the couple was in the midst of a divorce and her husband was away on a business trip.

A video apparently uploaded by Chen in August a year ago shows police investigating what looks like a ransacked apartment, with smashed violins and other instruments, belongings strewn everywhere, along with wrecked furniture and appliances.

While the alleged crime is over three years old, Japanese media report the suspect is a frequent traveler to China and was arrested July 25 upon her most recent return to Tokyo.
