TOKYO: A 43-year-old Japanese woman whose sudden divorce in a virtual game world made her so angry that she killed her online husband's digital persona has been arrested on suspicion of hacking, police said Thursday.

The woman, who is jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data, used his identification and password to log onto popular interactive game "Maple Story" to carry out the virtual murder in mid-May, a police official in northern Sapporo said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.

"I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," the official quoted her as telling investigators and admitting the allegations.

The woman had not plotted any revenge in the real world, the official said.

She has not yet been formally charged, but if convicted could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.

Players in "Maple Story" raise and manipulate digital images called "avatars" that represent themselves, while engaging in relationships, social activities and fighting against monsters and other obstacles.

The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, and killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead.

O noes.
The poor basement-dwellers shackles has been broken and he can now get a life.
Setting him free from a addiction is such a horrible crime.
I prefer to look at things in a positive way.

Woman jailed after 'killing' virtual husband
October 24, 2008, 1:06 pm

A 43-year-old Japanese player in a virtual game world became so angry about her sudden divorce from her online husband, she logged on with his password and killed his avatar.

She is now being held in a real-world prison on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data.

While police have not yet formally charged the woman, she could face up to five years' jail if found guilty.

Police said the piano teacher used her online husband's ID and password to log onto the online game Maple Story to carry out the virtual murder.

They did not believe she had plotted any revenge in the real world.

In August, a woman was charged in the US state of Delaware with plotting the real-life abduction of a boyfriend she met through the virtual reality website Second Life.
