PNP: Crazed stepson
brutally kills couple

BY CARLA GOMEZ

An elderly couple were brutally hacked to death with a cane cutter allegedly by their adopted son in a remote barangay of Himamaylan City at 5 a.m. yesterday.

Killed were Francisco Villamor, 76, and his wife, Crispina Villamor, 77. Both sustained multiple hack wounds, when discovered in their house in Barangay Mahalang about 25 kilometers from Himamaylan City proper, PO3 Maria Rona Entera said yesterday.

Francisco, a farmer, died on the spot, while Crispina, who also had a stab wounds in her body, died at a hospital in Kabankalan City, Entera said.

They were allegedly hacked by a relative of Crispina, Loreto Moises Rendon, 31, who was raised by the couple, police investigation showed.

Rendon appeared to be mentally deranged and rugby was found in his bag when policemen apprehended him in Barangay Mahalang.

He reportedly had an argument with the couple over money that triggered the hacking but no details were available up to press time.

Rendon was incoherent when questioned by the police.

He is now detained at the Himamaylan police station.*CPG
