A 44-year-old man was stabbed dead by his sister’s live-in partner when he tried to stop a fight between the two Sunday evening in Las Piñas City.
Roderick Narteya of Blk 16 Lot 9 Villa Pangarap, Bgy. Talon 5 was rushed by his sister to Las Piñas District Hospital where he was pronounced dead-on-arrival due to multiple stab wounds in the body.
The suspect, identified as Ramuel Jay Penolio, 30, construction worker, was critically wounded when he was allegedly stabbed by an unidentified man who were among the group of bystanders who chased him after he tried to escape. Investigation showed that at around 7:30 p.m., the victim was on his way home when he saw his sister and her live-in partner quarreling at the main road of Villa Pangarap, Bgy. Talon 5.
The victim approached the suspect and his sister and requested them to stop fighting in public but instead of heeding, Penolio turned his ire on Narteya and repeatedly stabbed him in the body.
