ALBAY - A 70-year-old farmer is accused of beheading his lessor in Camalig, Albay.

Edwinn Llenas, 55, was found decapitated and with several hack wounds in body in Barangay Mina in Camalig town Wednesday afternoon. 

Police said farmer-tenant Teodoro Odin Jr. is the primary suspect on the victim's death.

The suspect claimed he merely defended himself as the victim tried to hack him. 

Odin said Llenas went to his house to forcibly oust him from the land he had been tilling for 25 years. – from a report by Karren Canon, ABS-CBN News
