New Delhi: A Japanese girl has been detained for cutting off the head of her friend. The Police has also discovered that the psychopath girl used to cut off animal's heads in the past.

According to a report published in the Mail Online the 16-year-old schoolgirl is also accused of attacking her father with a baseball bat in the past before murdering her classmate.

The girl was living alone on advice of psychiatrists after she struck her father with a baseball bat. Her father had sought unsuccessfully to have the girl hospitalized.

The suspect, who has not been identified because she is a minor, was arrested in July after police found Matsuo's mutilated body at her apartment.

The victim had been beaten and strangled, investigators said. After she died, the suspect allegedly cut off her head, her left hand, and slit open her belly.

The suspect reportedly admitted to the slaying, telling police that she killed her classmate because she "wanted to dissect a dead body."

Those who know the suspect described her as "very smart, with emotional ups and downs," according to the Japan Times. Police said she will undergo psychiatric evaluation.

The alleged murder occurred in Sasebo, a city in Japan's Nagasaki prefecture.

A similar incident happened in the same city 10 years ago, when an 11-year-old girl fatally stabbed her 12-year-old friend because of remarks made in an Internet chat room.
