A baby 28 days old was killed as her parents were arguing in Purok 5, Barangay Basak, Cauayan town, Negros Occidental Thursday night.

Police Chief Insp. Gary Alan Resuma, chief of Cauayan Police, said Jolito Alandroque was arguing with his wife as he was carrying the baby then dropped their child on the floor.

"If you base it from the wife's complaint, he intentionally dropped the baby but, according to him after the interview, it was an accident. The wife is planning to file a case against him," Resuma said, adding that Alandroque was intoxicated.

The suspect is currently detained at Cauayan Police Station and faces parricide charges.
