Man, 2 sons murder wife in remote Leyte village

TACLOBAN CITY – A man, aided by his two teenage sons, strangled to death his 39-year-old wife, in a remote village in Pastrana town, Leyte on Sunday.

However, the police have yet to establish the motive for the killing.

The police identified the victim as Erlinda Germanes, who was killed by her 43-year-old husband, Melchor, and sons Melboy, 19, and Michael, 18, inside their house in Barangay Socsocon, about 5 km from the town proper of Pastrana.

SPO1 Gregorio Gerilla, of the Pastrana police, said one of the barangay residents went to the police station to report the murder. When the police arrived at the Germanes’ hut, the victim was already dead.

Melchor and his sons did not resist arrest.

The couple has two daughters, Mary Grace, 16, and Mary Rose, 12, who also witnessed the killing.

Gerilla said they have yet to determine the cause of the strangling.

“Some say they were possessed by evil spirits. We really don't know yet,” Gerilla said.

Mary Rose, the youngest daughter, said that days before the murder, her father and two brothers were behaving strangely.

“They said that they have to kill my mother to offer a sacrifice,” said Mary Rose.

Mary Rose also explained that she and Mary Grace could not help their mother because their father and brothers were very strong.

However, their maternal grandfather, Epifanio Dagami, believed that poverty could have driven his son-in-law to kill his daughter with the help of his grandsons.(
