A Japanese couple have been accused of forcing the woman’s teenage daughter to eat more than 30 goldfish.
The woman and her common-law husband are under arrest for repeatedly abusing the then-16-year-old girl.
Police say they killed the goldfish with detergent and then forced the girl to eat them last June.
The woman claims their actions were a form of discipline.
The pair has already been arrested for confining the girl, tying her to a bed, and other offenses.
