ILOILO City – A mentally ill man hacked his elder brother to death in Barangay Canawillian, Janiuay, Iloilo.
Fherlyn Braseliño, 21, was detained at the municipal police station lockup cell yesterday.
He used a ginunting to kill 24-year-old brother Adrian around 6:30 a.m. in their house.
Adrian was washing his face when attacked, police said. He was declared “dead on arrival” at the Federico Roman Tirador Sr. Memorial District Hospital.
Their father turned over Fherlyn to the police right after the hacking.
“According to Fherlyn, Adrian beat him up two months ago so he got mad at him,” said Senior Inspector Dadje Delima, Janiuay police chief.
He, indeed, appeared to be mentally unstable, added Delima, citing inconsistencies in the suspect’s statements.
“Sang ginliwat ko siya pamangkot naglain naman iya sabat,” said Delima said.
A possible complaint to be filed against Fherlyn is murder or homicide, according to the police chief./PN
