An enraged man who discovered his live-in partner sleeping with another upon coming home from the province surrendered to authorities after killing the cheating couple.
The suspect, who was identified as Bernardo Tolitol, admitted to committing the crime in Brgy. Commonwealth, Quezon City, GMA News Online reports.
According to witness accounts, Tolitol was seen knocking at the door of his house around 12 midnight.
“Nakita ko yan noong dumating yung tunay na asawa. Kumakatok ng malakas sa pinto pero patay yung ilaw. Noong bumalik kami ng kasama ko bukas na yung pinto, pumasok na yung lalaki. So alam ko na asawa niya yun kaya di na namin siya pinansin,” the witness said.
Meanwhile, Tolitol said he decided to go home after becoming suspicious of his partner, who wasn’t answering nor returning his calls.
Upon arriving, he was able to confirm his doubts after peeking inside the windows of their house and seeing his partner making out with another man.
He said the cheating pair at least had the decency to get dressed before opening the door for him. “Pagbukas ng pinto sinuntok ako dito at tsaka sinaksak ako ng gunting,” he said.
This prompted him to stab the victims identified as Marilou Bulat-ag and Jhonie Gulas to death.
Tolitol has been turned over by barangay officials to authorities and is currently detained in a police station.
