Feb 8 2002 10:14AM

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese police have arrested a woman who refused to bury her dead mother and instead kept the body in a bed in her apartment for nearly a year, a Japanese newspaper said Friday.

After failing to report her 92-year-old mother''s death in February last year, Yoshiko Nakahara, 52, left the body on a bed in a small room in the apartment the two women had shared, the Mainichi Daily News reported.

"I couldn''t bear to be parted from my mother," Nakahara was quoted as telling police.

Nakahara was arrested for the illegal disposal of a body, the newspaper said in its online edition.
