MANILA, Philippines – A woman is facing charges of parricide for allegedly stabbing her husband to death inside their home in Barangay Olympia, Makati City early Thursday.

The suspect, Analyn Elaida, allegedly attacked her sleeping husband Octavio, stabbing him multiple times with a kitchen knife.

Police said Elaida fetched her husband from a drinking session in a neighbor’s house the night before, which led to an argument.

Elaida said she felt embarrassed after her husband berated her in front of the neighbors.

The victim, who was reportedly drunk, passed out when they arrived home and was stabbed in his sleep. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on arrival. -- Report from Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
