A man who killed a woman in her 70s, the owner of a gosiwon in Gwanak-gu, Seoul, received a warrant review.

Reporter Ji-wook Kim, on the sidewalk.
A woman in her 30s, who is accused of murdering a woman in her 70s, the owner of a gosiwon where she lived, appeared in court to receive a warrant review.
A, who appeared in pajamas pants, said sorry to the victim and the bereaved family.
[Mr./Suspect A: (Do you have anything to say to the victim and his/her family?) I'm sorry.
(Why did you kill the victim?) …
Earlier, on the 27th, the police applied for an arrest warrant for A on the charge of murdering the owner, B, in his 70s, and stealing a bankbook and cash worth 60,000 won at a four-story gosiwon in Sillim-dong, Gwanak-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 27th.
It was confirmed that Mr. A, who was unemployed, said that he had committed the crime when he found out that there was cash in the bag that Mr. B usually carried during the police investigation.
Mr. B has always been close to Mr. A, who has been living in the gosiwon he ran for 14 years, and it is known that he received the monthly rent at a lower price than the surrounding market rate considering his circumstances.
It is said that Mr. A committed the crime when he sought the first basement floor where Mr. B was staying to return his key while terminating his gosiwon contract.
On the day before the crime, which was the date of writing the regular contract for Gosiwon, Mr. A personally found Mr. B, handed him a drink and received the contract.
A police official said, "He was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crime."
Whether or not to arrest Mr. A is expected to be decided tonight at the earliest.
