Another stabbing

Earlier on the same day, local police arrested a construction worker in Carcar City after he allegedly stabbed his wife’s uncle.

Corporal Ian Yancy Batucan, an investigator of the Carcar City Police Station, said they arrested Jaydie Dale Vallespin, 29, in Barangay Tuyom on Sunday dawn.

Vallespin reportedly committed the crime after he was insulted by his wife’s uncle, Jerry Tano, 34, who demanded that she leave the former for being incompetent.

Tano sustained four stab wounds, all accumulated on his back and stomach.

Tano was brought to Carcar District Hospital but he was later referred to the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City for further treatment.

Batucan said Tano’s family is determined to file charges against Vallespin. (GDC, GPL / TPT)
