Jealousy drives man to kill ‘wife’

July 18, 2020

CONSUMED by jealousy, a farm worker killed his live-in partner in Sitio Mauli, Bgy. Sapang Biabas, Mabalacat City, Pampanga before midnight last July 15.

In a belated police report, the suspect was identified as Carlito Tadejo, 30, who managed to escape  but was eventually arrested by authorities.

His live-in partner, identified only as “Elena”, was found by barangay tanod inside the couple’s residence sprawled on the pavement bathing in her own pool of blood.

A witness told investigators that the victim was heard crying in pain and shouting for help.

Barangay tanods were called in and they saw the suspect.

When they asked the whereabouts of his live-in partner, he immediately ran away.

Inside the house, the lifeless body of the victim was found with a stab wound to her chest.

Tadejo is facing charges for murder before the City prosecutor’s Office.
