NAHA, Japan (Kyodo) - A US serviceman and a Japanese woman were found dead Saturday at an apartment in the southern island prefecture of Okinawa, local police and the USA forces in Japan said.

The sailor, 31, whose identity has not been released, was attached to the III Marine Division, according to the III Marine Expeditionary Force.

"They both had stab wounds and their deaths were confirmed later", the spokesman said.

According to local police, the 32-year-old marine was believed to be in a relationship with the 44-year-old woman. The police said the woman's child witnessed the incident when it happened in the early morning and called a relative, who in turn notified law enforcement.

A minor was found unharmed in the apartment and is being taken care of by authorities, Okinawa police said.

"We are aware of an incident resulting in the death of an apparent U.S. Navy Sailor with III Marine Division and a resident of Okinawa", he said in an email.

Japan's vice foreign minister Takeo Akiba called US Ambassador to Japan William Hagerty Saturday, when he described the case as "extremely regrettable" and sought cooperation for the investigation, the ministry said in a statement.

People there have long complained about crime, noise and the destruction of the environment.

Okinawa, the southernmost of Japan's bigger islands, hosts about half of the 54,000 U.S. troops stationed in Japan while amounting to only 1 percent of the country's territory.
