April 30, 2019

ROBBERS stabbed dead a 77-year-old woman in Tabaco City, Albay.

Merci Bornelia was found with multiple stab wounds in her house in Bgy. San Juan, Tabaco City.

The old woman was with a minor grandchild when the unidentified thieves  barged into the house and took her cash and valuables.

The suspects killed the old woman before fleeing but left her grandchild unscathed.

Police theorized the victim probably knew her attackers who opted to kill her in a bid to hide their identities.

Local residents and the victim’s family strongly condemned the brutal slaying of Bornelia.

The family said Bornelia’s grandchild is in a state of shock and refused to talk to anyone.
