SAN FERNANDO, Camarines Sur -- An irritated 14-year-old girl smothered her 3-year-old sister to death to stop her from crying Saturday evening in Barangay Lupi this town.
According to PO2 Jessa Borromeo, assistant head of the Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) of San Fernando MPS, the suspect used a piece of rag (“basahan”) to cover her sister’s face until she stopped breathing.
Local police said the girl put her dead sister in a grassy area some distance away from their house where the victim was later found by their relatives.
Borromeo said the suspect asked her over and over again if she will be “imprisoned for suffocating” her sister to death.
Initial investigation showed the girl has a history of violent behavior.
The two sisters were often left alone in their house with no elder looking after them because their father works at a junk shop and their mother is a stay-in househelper in Metro Manila.
