MUNTINLUPA CITY, Philippines - Eunice Cuevas' unborn child lost his father, Junjun Gemillan, early Sunday morning in Poblacion, Muntinlupa City.

Her husband went to a store near their house when he was stabbed and killed by 4 drunk men for no apparent reason, police said.  

Two suspects, Joel Allego and one 17-year-old boy, were arrested by the authorities. They denied the allegations, claiming they were just passersby.

Two others, known only by their aliases as "Patrick" and "Macmac," escaped. 

Cuevas is on her 7th month of pregnancy and now worries how she will raise their child. 

"Sana sumuko na lang sila. Patay na nga yung dinale nila maawa naman sila,” she said. 

A witness said he saw the suspects maul and stab the victim.

"Yung isa, pinalo siya ng walis tapos nakita ko may saksak na pala sa gilid,” the witness added.

Police have yet to establish the motive for the killing, according to Police Officer 1 Joseph Gonzales. "Di pa natin sigurado ‘yan. I-imbestigahan pa natin kung ano talaga motibo."

The suspects will face murder charges, police said.
