LIKE a devil’s advocate, suspicion probably planted in the man’s mind images of his partner cheating on him with her supposed lover. As his jealousy grew, so did his ‘deadly’ rage.
Perhaps driven by bitterness and anger, the 54-year-old man confronted his partner, 38, on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022, inside their house at the Golden Horizon Subdivision in Bgy. Hugo Perez, Trece Martires City, Cavite.
At the height of their argument, the livid husband attacked his hapless wife with a bladed weapon. He stabbed her over and over. When the man soon saw his alleged victim lying on the floor and covered in her own blood, he allegedly stabbed himself.
Police investigation showed the incident occurred at 4 p.m. and that the ill-fated couple are currently under observation in the hospital.
The suspect is facing a case for frustrated homicide.
