A Fuchu Prison inmate in his 50s has committed suicide by stabbing himself in the head with a chopstick, prison officials said over the weekend.
The man stabbed himself in the back of the head with the sharp end of a broken chopstick on the night of Feb. 19.
He received treatment at a hospital in the Tokyo suburb of Fuchu, but died Sunday morning in the Fuchu Prison infirmary. An autopsy will be carried out Monday at Fuchu Police Station.
Prison officials said the man, whose identity has not been revealed, started serving his sentence at Fuchu in March 2006.
