A man hacked his younger brother to death Monday night in Barangay Sto. Rosario, Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental.
Police reports said Reynan dela Cruz Sedillo, of Sitio Tapulaw of Barangay Sto. Rosario, who was allegedly intoxicated, had gone to the house of his elder brother, Joseph, for “karate lessons,” but was told to go home and sleep.
An argument ensued between the brothers, after which Reynan went home. However, he returned minutes later with a bladed weapon, or “lading”, and started hacking at the wall of his brother’s house and was destroying it, the police report said.
Angered, the older brother, Joseph, allegedly attacked Reynan, who died instantly of multiple hack wounds.
Joseph surrendered voluntarily to Leonida Rubia, barangay council member of Sto. Rosario, who, in turn, handed him over to the Sta. Catalina police.*JFP
