    A woman has been arrested in Japan for committing a virtual murder:

    The 43-year-old was reportedly furious at finding herself suddenly divorced in the online game Maplestory.

    Police say she illegally accessed log-in details of the man playing her husband, and killed off his character.

    The woman, a piano teacher, is in jail in Sapporo waiting to learn if she faces charges of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating data.

    She was arrested on Wednesday and taken 620 miles (1,000 km) from her home in southern Miyazaki to Sapporo – where her “husband”, a 33-year-old office worker lives.
