Apparently fed up with his abuses, a son allegedly stabbed his own father to death Monday in Brgy. Isio, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, the police said yesterday.
Senior Inspector Lowell Garinganao, Cauayan police chief, said the suspect, identified as Randy Bargamento,23, is now detained at the police lock-up cell, pending the filing of parricide charges against him.
Before the incident, Garinganao said a heated argument had taken place between Bargamento and his father, Esteban,48.
The victim succumbed to stab wounds in the back and breast, while the suspect had stab wounds on his hand, investigations of the Cauayan police showed.
A double-bladed weapon, allegedly used by the suspect in stabbing his father, was recovered by the Cauayan police.
Garinganao said the victim physically abused members of his family whenever he got drunk.
He told MBC Aksyon Radyo that the suspect felt no remorse over what he did to his father, while his mother and siblings are divided on whether or not to press parricide charges against him. *GPB
