MANILA, Philippines – A Filipino overseas worker was killed by her own husband in Israel.

Elsie Lagunday’s body was discovered last September 17 in her residence in Israel.

The suspect is identified as Modechai Chaim.

However, the circumstances surrounding the death of the Pinay are still unclear.

Lagunday’s family in Antique province still could not believe that they lost their kin.

Lagunday’s father, Danilo, said her daughter worked as a domestic helper for 10 years in Israel before she married her husband of five years.

But since she got married, the family said they have not received any complain from her.

They also know that Lagunday is the suspect’s second wife. The first wife was also killed by the suspect allegedly due to jealousy.

Aside from the repatriation of the OFW’s remains, the family also wants Lagunday’s only son to be brought to her hometown to live with them. Report from Joyce Clavecillas, ABS-CBN News
