MANILA, Philippines – A case of jealousy drove a lesbian to hit her live-in partner with a hammer after the latter refused to "unfriend" her ex-lover in the social networking site Facebook.

The 23-year-old victim, who refused to be named, said the suspect's anger was triggered by her refusal to "unfriend" her ex-lover on Facebook.

The victim sustained multiple bruises in the head. Her hands were also injured after she tried to shield her head while she was being beaten inside the suspect's house in Barangay Plainview, Mandaluyong City.

The suspect, 25, was arrested through the help of the victim's friends. She is facing frustrated murder charges.

The victim said she is willing to forgive the suspect. However, she said she is never coming back to the suspect's house. – report by Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
