Cebu City stabbing attack: Man kills ‘partner’, wounds her 70-year-old mom
Police: Killing triggered by victim ending relationship with assailant
The assailant also stabbed and wounded the victim’s mother, who tried to pacify them inside the victim’s house in in Barangay Bacayan in Cebu City at past 7 p.m. on New Year’s eve, Dec. 31, 2022.
Police Major Alvin Llamedo, chief of Talamban Police Station, identified the dead victim as Elaine Englis and her injured mother, Emma Englis, 70.
The ‘drunk’ suspect, Jumbe Olarita of Barangay Cabancalan in Mandaue City, was apprehended by bystanders after he tried to escape from the area.
He was immediately turned over to the police.
He was detained at the Talamban Police Station and would be facing complaints of Frustrated Homicide and Homicide.
“Ang suspect iyaha na nga uyab (sa biktima)…gibuwagan kuno na siya. Sige na kuno na silag away-away. Duha na sila ka tuig manag-uyab. Then karon lang bag-ohay ra, gibuwagan daw na ang lalaki gumikan kay sigeg pamun-og,” Llamedo said.
(The suspect is her boyfriend…the former ended the relationship. They had always been arguing. They had been in a relationship for two years. Then recently, the victim, decided to end the relationship with the suspect because he was physically abusive.)
Llamedo, however, said he had no knowledge if these two were living together in the victim’s house.
He said that Olarita, the suspect, used an eight-inch kitchen knife and allegedly had the “intent to kill” the victim.
“Sa akong tan-aw, nianha ang suspect [to commit the crime],” the Talamban police chief said.
(The way I looked at it, the suspect went to the victim’s house [to commit the crime].)
Initial investigation showed that Olarita allegedly stabbed Elaine several times, and then turned on the latter’s mother, who just tried to stop them from fighting.
Elaine was brought to the nearby hospital, but she was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.
Her mother, Emma, is currently at the hospital recuperating from the stab wounds she suffered from the stabbing attack.
Elaine was a transwoman, who was a volunteer of the Love Yourself Inc., which is a non-profit, nongovernmental organization.
This was according to a co-volunteer of Love Yourself Inc.
