In an interview with Cebu-based radio station dyHP, Dindin said that her father suddenly went and visited her mother Maguate.

Despite being separated already, the suspect reportedly had been frequenting their house that usually ends in arguments and commotions, she added.

That time, Rebanuel and Dindin once again got into a fight but family members were shocked when the suspect grabbed a bolo and then hacked Marguete multiple times.

In the meantime, police continue to conduct further investigations into the killing.
