MANILA - A man was found dead inside his house in Carmel 5, Tandang Sora, Quezon City, a few hours after he allegedly stabbed his sister-in-law on Thursday morning.

The man was identified as Rafael Alejandro, 49.

According to his in-laws, he locked himself inside the house after stabbing his sister-in-law.

He was later found dead, his body hanging inside his house.

They added that Alejandro, who seemed to be under the influence of illegal drugs, ran amok while asking his sister-in-law for money.

He was also demanding a certain land title.

His sister-in-law refused to give him money, which led to the stabbing incident.

Alejandro's sister-in-law sustained stab wounds on her chest. She was rushed to the hospital for treatment. -- report from Doland Castro, ABS-CBN News
