A lovers’ spat a day before Valentine’s Day ended badly for two sisters who were reported to be in critical condition at a hospital after both were stabbed by a man driven by jealousy and possibly drugs.

Mary Catherine Gino-Oliveros, 27, was reported to be in a coma after she suffered three cardiac arrests while her sister, Mary Christine Gino, 31, remains under observation. Both are confined at the intensive care unit of Manila East Medical Center, their brother Jonathan told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Their attacker was identified by the police as Christine’s boyfriend, Richard Belasa or Buboy, now the object of a manhunt after he stabbed the sisters inside their house at the Palmera II Subdivision in Taytay, Rizal in the early hours of Feb. 13.

Jonathan, however, said that Belasa was still courting Christine so it was unclear what they had fought about.

Senior Supt. Rolando Anduyan, Rizal police provincial director, said that before she was stabbed, Christine and Belasa had argued because he suspected her of seeing another man. Belasa then turned on Catherine who rushed to her sister’s aid.

According to Jenilyn Sarmiento, one of the victims’ house helpers, Christine came home at 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 12, accompanied by Belasa. Also in the house at that time were Catherine, her eight-month-old baby and two other house helpers who were in a room at the second floor.

Sarmiento said that when she went downstairs to make coffee, she found Christine and Belasa seated on the sofa. The couple were speaking in low voices but it was obvious they were having an argument although she couldn’t make out what they were fighting about, she added.

After a while, she said the couple stopped talking and she saw Belasa embracing Christine. At this point, she went upstairs.

A few minutes later, those who were in the room on the second floor heard loud noises coming from the living room,  prompting Catherine to see what the matter was.

Sarmiento said she then heard Christine shouting, “Buboy! Buboy! No!”

She added that when she ventured downstairs to take a peek, she saw Belasa holding in his left hand the knife Christine kept in the house for protection. Christine was in front of him while Catherine was behind him, trying to stop Belasa from hurting her sister.

Sarmiento said she immediately ran back upstairs and locked herself, the baby and the other maids inside their room. When she decided to go down  after a few minutes, she found the two sisters with stab wounds and Belasa gone.

According to the police, Belasa did not appear to have a criminal record although they had received information that he was a drug user.

    Man o man it is getting crazier out there.  I told you if it is not a gun that kills or harm, it is something else?  Will authorities also consider banning knives to curtail this killing sprees?

    • WeAry_Bat

      hey, with a gun, both would be dead including the yayas and baby by shooting off the lock.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_POBZSV5PGTGUS3YA2KR2NZI3HA Alex

        if the guy intends to kill all of them, it wouldn’t matter if he has a gun or a knife. 

      • WeAry_Bat

        violent acts are within a span of time due to psychical and psychological limitations, just like robberies.  increasing the conflict time by blocking, hampering, creating loud noises or fleeing then increases chance of victim survival.

        guns are quick in finishing the round unlike a knife or any weapon.  the man really wanted to kill.  the story did not include the number of stab wounds but 3 cardiac arrests means vital organs were hit badly, as explicit as murder is about intent.  it is just that a knife can be inefficient, thankfully.

    Start blaming the people and not the weapons they use. An idiot will use even a car key to stab someone. Time to bring back the death penalty and accept there are some people in this country who do not deserve to continue breathing. Lets clean up the gene pool.

    • WeAry_Bat

       Death penalty increases the chances of any victim to be killed.  Besides, depending on the situation if guilt is absolute, it is already being done.

      EDITED:

      Well, i just read more of the corruption of bunkhouses by DSWD. Let’s make an exception: death penalty to corrupt government officials only.

    “Jonathan, however, said that Belasa was STILL COURTING Christine so it was unclear what they had fought about.” tapos sa headline GIRLFRIEND. Ano ba talaga, ate?
    Epic Quote din yung: “Buboy! Buboy! No!”

  • louie

    mga addict na yan!!! walang awa. This is the reason why we should have death penalty. Imagine if this went further, the maids and the baby could have been stabbed also. bwisit na addict!

      I’m not a fan… but REALLY?! Kasalanan ni P-Noy to?

  • Komen To

    For as long as there are stupid people, who cannot reason with their logic, and whose logic are as far from the issues- like what you see in some comments here, this place will never grow economically nor morally. Shame on you people

    • ARIKUTIK

      Your stupidier by commenting about the bloggers but not on the news article. It was a 3 some that gone awry…. Donk !

      • http://twitter.com/jonjavier96 Jon Javier

        I read just two comments from you and already I feel dumber.

        if you wanna live out your perverted fantasy that it was a threesome gone awry, nobody can tell you to do otherwise. Just be mindful that it displays to everyone how shallow and moronic you are. Granted that this is the internet and you can act all tough hiding infront of your computer armed with your almighty keyboard, know that an eight-month old baby lost her mother who was just defending her aunt from a delusional maniac.

  • xuaeenr

    Praying for both to recover. I really feel sorry especially for Catherine who has months-old baby.

    • http://twitter.com/jonjavier96 Jon Javier

      Catherine, I’ve been told, has passed away. An eight-month old baby has lost her mom for nothing. Let’s just pray for Christine’s continued recovery and justice for the Gino family.

    Is it really because of jealousy? or an attempted rape that got frustrated.

  • julieboy

    What drugs can do to a man’s brain..I pity both of the women,sisters at that getting involve with a man like this.Hope they catch this psycho soon.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NMCDM6E674J3UNZR4VZWFZ774U Angel

    Misleading ang title. How do you know the man was jealous? Even your story contradicted your title.

  • mulanay

    Bilasa na talaga ang utak nya.
