A man admitted to killing his own son in Ilocos Sur, but said it was only to defend himself and his family.
Victim Jansen Jimenez, 33, was hacked in the head by his father Onofre inside their house in Barangay Barbar, San Juan town.
The victim’s family said Jansen was a violent person, especially when drunk.
Onofre said he was forced to kill Jansen because the latter was about to hurt him and his wife.
Jansen’s wife, Edrialyn, said she will not be filing charges against her father-in-law, despite being urged by the police. – Umagang Kay Ganda, July 17 2012
