Man hacked to death, penis cut off by own brother
MANILA -- A man was stabbed and hacked to death by his own brother in Echague, Isabela.
The victim, 39-year-old Gary Simangan, met his death at the hands of his older brother, 42-year-old Julian Simangan.
After he was stabbed, the victim's penis was also cut off by Julian.
The murder happened Sunday night.
According to SPO3 Marcos Binoya of Echague PNP, they tried to help the victim, but the suspect continued stabbing his brother when they left to look for help.
Aside from being under the influence of alcohol, Julian reportedly hated his brother, enough for him to commit the crime.
The suspect showed marks left on his skin when his brother Gary allegedly stabbed him a few years back.
Julian also said that he once caught his younger brother in bed with his (Julian's) wife.
Julian was able to send his brother to jail, but the latter was released after their other siblings talked to them.
Despite what he did, Julian said that he doesn't regret what he has done to his brother.
A murder case has already been filed against Julian Simangan.
