Police raid Japan widow's home after 'poisoning arrest'

Police in Japan have raided the homes of a 67-year-old Japanese woman arrested on suspicion of poisoning her husband, as details of six former partners' deaths emerged in local media.

The raids on Chisako Kakehi's homes come a day after she was detained.

An autopsy on her 75-year-old husband, who died in December 2013 weeks after their wedding, had found traces of cyanide in his blood.
