Friday, September 20, 2013
A 22-YEAR-OLD man stabbed and killed his 30-year-old uncle after a drinking session Thursday dawn at Sitio KSKC, Barangay Tungkop, Minglanilla, Cebu.
The victim was identified as Michael Torres, habal-habal driver, while the suspect was identified as Kevin Alfante, single. Both are residents of Sitio Tabay, Barangay Tunghaan, Minglanilla.
Police said that Torres and Alfante were onboard a motorcycle on their way home, coming from a drinking session, when a heated argument between them ensued.
Torres left Alfante after he punched the latter three times.
When Alfante arrived home, Torres suddenly pointed a kitchen knife at him, prompting Alfante to run away.
The suspect went to his parents’ home at Sitio KSKC, Barangay Tungkop, but Torres followed him.
Upon reaching the residence of Alfante’s parents, Torres confronted his nephew while armed with a knife. The two then wrestled for the knife, and Alfante was able to grab it, then stabbed Torres twice, hitting him in his upper right back.
After the incident, Alfante fled while his uncle was brought to Minglanilla District Hospital but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.
Responding policemen recovered the victim’s motorcycle and the kitchen knife estimated to be 12 inches long.
Police are still conducting a manhunt operation as of this posting Friday. (Akimie R. Losorata and Jerson B. Rufin, PIT interns/Sunnex)
