Thursday, July 12, 2012
THE City Prosecution Office (CPO) sued a 60-year-old man for stabbing to death the live-in partner of his step daughter.
Prosecutor Lady Juris Zozobrado found probable cause to charge Teodoro Devedar Ejusa for killing Cipriano Ejusa.
In her affidavit, Maria Gracia Raneses said when she arrived home from work around 8 p.m., she saw the respondent, his live-in partner and his mother having a drinking session and noticed that they were already drunk.
She said the respondent and live-in partner figured in a heated altercation but was later pacified after talking and convincing the victim to calm down and go back with her to their house.
She said the respondent went wild and shouted, "Pamatyon ta mong tanan!" prompting her to report the incident to the Mintal police.
Immediately after she left for the police station, witnesses saw the respondent stab the victim in the chest.
In their joint affidavit, the witnesses said the Cipriano managed to grab the knife from Teodoro and stab the latter several times.
Cipriano fell on the ground while neighbors brought Teodoro to the Robillo hospital.
When Raneses arrived home, he saw his husband on the ground bleeding. He was brought to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
Zozobrado recommended a P40,000 bail for the respondent's temporary liberty. (ANC)
