The suspect reportedly admitted to stabbing his sister, who was a college student, in the “heat of the moment” at 8 a.m. Wednesday after he felt “ignored for being a college drop-out without a steady job.”

The man reportedly confessed to the crime 11 hours after the incident at an apartment complex in Mungyeong City.

Once an arrest warrant is issued, police will launch an investigation into the crime.
