MANILA – A man was arrested after he allegedly killed his live-in partner inside a burger stand in Tondo, Manila on Tuesday.

The victim, identified as Jerica Sioco, was found dead inside the burger stand by her workmate.

Sioco's body was filled with stab wounds. The knife used in killing her was found at the crime scene.

The suspect, Sioco's live-in partner of five years, Richard Ryan Reyes, was arrested. He admitted to killing Sioco during a heated argument involving the custody of their two children.
