A wife who has an alleged text mate was stabbed to death by her husband at Purok 7, Brgy. Villa Imelda, City of Ilagan, Isabela.
Victim Melowin Baraquio, 26, resident of Brgy. Villa Imelda, was stabbed five times on different parts of her body by her husband Roberto Baraquio, 34, construction worker and a resident of the same place.
Around 4:10 pm on May 16, Melowin and Roberto had a heated argument regarding the alleged text mate of the victim.
During their argument, the victim uttered offensive words to her mother-in-law which prompted Roberto to take a kitchen knife and stab the victim multiple times.
When personnel of Rescue 1124 arrived, they declared the victim with no pulse rate.
Roberto voluntarily surrendered to the responding Barangay Tanod and was brought to Ilagan Police for further investigation and proper disposition.
