Man beheads girlfriend; shot dead by police
CEBU CITY–A man was shot dead by policemen after beheading his common-law wife in Consolacion town, northern Cebu on Sunday morning.
Dominic Pahugot, 27, cut off the head of Lovely Jane Quinio in their home at Sitio Libo, Barangay Tayud past 7 a.m. following a heated argument.
He reportedly tried to attack the police officers who went to their house after barangay tanod Rogelio Quinaging reported the crime.
One of the policemen shot and killed Pahugot, said PO2 Jorge Navales of Consolacion police station.
Navales said Pahugot was in their list of drug users in the village. Last month, he was arrested by the police after neighbors complained that he went berserk.
He was committed to the psychiatric ward of a hospital but was released since he was able to answer the questions well. Pahugot and Quinio had a fight on Saturday night that went on until Sunday morning.
The couple’s children, aged two and four, were placed under the temporary custody of their neighbor.
