CEBU CITY,  Philippines — A case of parricide will be filed on Monday, June 17, against a 42-year-old construction worker who shot dead his 55-year-old brother after an argument last June 13 in their house in Sitio Atabay, Barangay Poblacion, Cordova town.

Eduardo Sitoy was detained at the Cordova Police Station detention cell after he surrendered to police for shooting to death his elder brother, Reynaldo.
