A man was hacked to death following an argument with his mother in their home at Barangay Dancalan, Ilog, Negros Occidental, Wednesday night, October 27.

Killed was Jestony Ubay, 27, a laborer.

Ubay was in a heated argument with his mother, Chona Ubay, when he took a bladed weapon and attempted to stab the elderly woman but he was stopped by his younger sister, Angeline Ubay, an Ilog police report said.

Angeline, who was overpowered by her brother, fell to the ground. She then shouted for help.

When her live-in partner, suspect Danilo Andilab, 23, a construction worker, saw she was grappling with her brother, he hacked Jestony several times with a bolo.

Angeline also sustained hack wounds on her fingers and left leg.

They were brought to Lorenzo D. Zayco District Hospital in Kabankalan City, where Jestony was declared dead on arrival.

The suspect is in police custody.*
