BACOLOD City – A man was stabbed dead while having sex with his girlfriend around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday in Purok 7, Barangay Isio, Cauayan town, Negros Occidental.
Chief Inspector James Latayon, Cauayan police head, identified the victim as Jay Gaurana Singson, 37, resident of Barangay Caliling also in the town.
Singson was stabbed from the back while in coitus with his girlfriend. He was rushed to Cauayan District Hospital but was declared “dead on arrival” by attending physician Dr. Allen John Jamito.
Police identified the suspect as Dante Vargas, 49, married, Singson’s neighbor.
An initial investigation reveals that the victim and his girlfriend, Rosie Arcenio Ceriaco, were having sex inside the latter’s house when the suspect entered the residence through the unlocked kitchen door. Despite seeing the couple having sex, Vargas barged into Ceriaco’s bedroom and stabbed the victim in the back. Vargas immediately fled the scene as Ceriaco called out to her neighbors for help.
Vargas surrendered himself to the Cauayan police around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. He was detained at the custodial facility of the Cauayan Police Station.
Among the motives being considered by the police is jealousy since Vargas allegedly is infatuated with Ceriaco, disclosed the Cauayan police./PN
