Tempo - - News - (Erma Edera)

A woman was stabbed to death by her for­mer boyfriend after she re­fused to live with him again in Tondo, Manila, Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Janet San­tos, 38, sin­gle, a res­i­dent of Maria Guizon Street, Daang Bakal Street, Tondo. She was de­clared dead on ar­rival at Ospi­tal ng Tondo.

The sus­pect, Patrick Fran­cisco Ramos, 62, sin­gle, of Laong Nasa Street, Tondo, es­caped after the stab­bing and is now hunted by po­lice.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that the vic­tim and sus­pect were for­mer live-in part­ners.

Case in­ves­ti­ga­tor SPO1 Jor­lan Taluban said San­tos was wash­ing clothes in front of her res­i­dence when the sus­pect ar­rived at around 1 p.m. on Satur­day.

Taluban said Ramos tried to con­vince San­tos to live with him again, but the vic­tim de­clined.

Mo­ments after, the sus­pect pulled out a knife and stabbed her in the back.

The vic­tim man­aged to face the sus­pect, but Ramos con­tin­u­ously stabbed her un­til she col­lapsed on the ground.
