A man reportedly stabbed his wife to death using a bolo knife in Cotabato City Thursday midnight.
A report from ABS-CBN News said the suspect was identified as Chos Mangcop of Maya Street in Federville Subdivision, Brgy. Rosario Heights-3 in the said city.
Chos reportedly did not want his wife Hasmiyah to leave and work abroad. After a heated argument, Chos stabbed his wife with a bolo.
The report said the suspect also attacked his brother-in-law, Tho Angas, who had only tried to pacify them.
The suspect also tried to kill himself after seeing his wife already dead. He and Angas were then rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Police said they will file charges against the suspect.
