A 54-year-old farmer who earlier mauled his wife was allegedly killed by his own son.
Nestor Ubas sustained wounds on his head after his head accidentally bumped to a big stone during a scuffle with the suspect.
The incident occurred at Barangay Balubal at 5:30 pm Wednesday.
Rico Ubas, 24, who immediately surrendered himself to the police, denied killing his father.
“Giduol ko kay ako siyang gibadlong kay nakita naman nako siya nga gituklo niya si mama. Iya kong giatubang ug iya kong gisumbag naigo ko. Ikaduha niyang sumbag wala siya kaigo apan didto siya nakapaingon sa bato ug nabangga iyang ulo,” Rico explained.
He said he has no intention of killing his father and maintained it was purely accident.
Thinking that his father was just dizzy, he even gave the latter water to revive him before rushing him to the hospital.
“Nagsugod nang pangulata sa akong papa sa akong mama kadtong bata pa mi hangtud karon,” Rico said.
Chief Insp. Ivan Viñas, Puerto police station chief said, he is waiting for the aggrieve party to come to their office to file a complaint against the suspect.
Rico is temporarily detained at the Puerto police mini-cell.
