A JAPANESE teenager has told police she murdered an elderly woman with an axe because she "just wanted to kill someone".

The 19-year-old, a student at Japan's prestigious Nagoya University, hacked at 77-year-old Tomoko Mori with an axe before using a scarf to strangle her "because she wasn't completely dead", the Asahi Shimbun reported.

The teen was arrested yesterday, reportedly telling investigators: "I have just wanted to kill someone since childhood. It could have been anybody."

Mrs Mori had become acquainted with her alleged murderer when she tried to persuade her to join a religious group, much to the teens "annoyance", police said.

Mrs Mori's husband reported her missing last month and their investigations led them to the 19-year-old's apartment, where they allegedly found the murder weapon.

The killing allegedly occurred at the student's apartment in Nagoya, central Japan, with an axe the suspect had acquired as a junior high school student, Jiji Press reported.

On the day of the murder, she reportedly tweeted: "I eventually did it." Her name was not released because she is a minor under Japanese law.

Crime levels are low in Japan and murder is uncommon but the country has seen a recent spate of gruesome murders involving teenage girls.

In August last year a 16-year-old schoolgirl confessed to decapitating her classmate because she "wanted to dissect someone".

The girl is suspected of bludgeoning 15-year-old Aiwa Matsuo repeatedly before strangling her to death. Aiwa's family raised the alarm when their daughter failed to return home after spending the day with friends.

The teen allegedly confessed to the murder, telling police she had acted alone, decapitating her victim and severing her left hand.

The alleged killer has yet to face trial.

In 2004, another school-age girl was charged with murder after slashing a classmate's throat.
