Man discovers pa in sex act with his wife, hacks father-A A +A
Thursday, December 12, 2013
A FORMER security guard hacked his 51-year-old father to death inside his house in Barangay Pangdan, Naga City at dawn yesterday.
Police said that suspect Marjon Manriquez, 26, murdered his father, Ananias, after he caught the latter having sex with his wife last July.
Manriquez’s father died about half an hour after he was admitted to the South General Hospital in Barangay Tuyan, in the same city. Ananias died due to multiple hack wounds on his neck and head.
Manriquez was arrested in his house in Sitio Suton, Barangay Pangdan after his wife, Hazel, reported to police on his whereabouts.
SPO1 Ian Quitayen, one of the investigators in the case, revealed that around 12 a.m. yesterday, Manriquez confronted his father in his house.
Manriquez said he saw his father having sex with his wife earlier this year. But he hadn’t brought out the issue until yesterday.
Angry at his father, Manriquez took a 16-inch bolo, attacked his father and fled.
Quitayen said that while Manriquez was still working as a security guard for a mall in Talisay City a few months earlier, he saw how his father tried to seduce his wife several times.
But the suspect kept it to himself.
Quitayen revealed that Ananias had long been separated from Manriquez’s mother for unknown reasons.
Manriquez’s wife also revealed to police that her husband has had a previous criminal record. Quitayen said they are still checking if the suspect has a crime record.
For now, they are awaiting word from the victim’s other children to file a parricide case against Manriquez. If no one comes forward to file a case, they will have no choice, but to release Manriquez.
Sun.Star Cebu tried to get Manriquez’s side, but he refused to comment.
