MANILA -- A woman died after her neighbor hacked her outside her house in Brgy. Tinadtaran in Buenavista, Guimaras Tuesday evening, police said.

The victim sustained several hack wounds. One of her hands was also detached from her body.

Relatives declined to give the victim's name to protect her five children.

According to investigators, the victim was walking outside her house when she met the suspect, Ruby Grecia, outside her house.

There was no history of conflict between the two women, and the hacking incident came as a surprise.

Grecia turned herself over to the police. She is now detained in Buenavista Police Station.

She claimed that her judgment was clouded, causing her to hack the victim.

The victim's family is seeking justice for the crime. -- Regi Adosto, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
