A lady died while two others were hurt in a stabbing incident in a residential warehouse in Sto. Domingo, Quezon City early Sunday, police official said.
Loida Villaranda, 23, died while her housemates Ronalyn Carias, 24 and Jenalyn Toriefil, 18, were hurt when Jerwin Monteman, 23, houseboy attacked them due to paranoia.
According to investigations, the suspect felt that his housemates are ganging up on him and so when he was drunk, he confronted Carias. Monteman was fed up in their argumentation which triggered him to get a knife in the kitchen for a stabbing attempt on Carias. Monteman’s attention suddenly diverted to Villaranda when the latter came and screamed upon seeing the incident.
Villaranda died on the spot after obtaining seven stab wounds in head, neck and chest while Carias and Toriefil obtained wounds on the head and left hand respectively after the suspect hit them with a block of wood, police investigator PO3 Ernesto Corpuz Jr., said in a phone interview.
The incident transpired at No.172 Don Manuel near cor. Don Pepe Brgy. Sto. Domingo, Quezon City at around 7: 30 am Sunday.
The apprehended suspect and the two injured victims were turned over to Homicide Division of QCPD in Camp Karingal for further investigations and filing of case while the dead body of Villaranda was brought to the SOCO laboratory for autopsy, Corpuz added.
