MANILA -- A Chinese businessman died on Saturday after he was allegedly stabbed by a former employee.

The victim, Ke Yushuang, 60, was found with stab wounds and lifeless inside his house in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur.

According to his relatives, Yushuang, his wife and two grandchildren went home from their store at around 5 p.m. on Saturday.

The victim's wife left the house after a few minutes and went back to their store.

Upon returning home, she found her husband already dead. His grandchildren were not hurt.

Investigators believe that the victim's business had something to do with his death.

A week ago, the family fired one of their store helpers for stealing. The act was recorded in the store's closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera.

An investigation is ongoing.

The police refused to give any information about the suspect. -- report from Marsman Daguio, ABS-CBN News Ilocos
