MANILA, Philippines — Tension gripped the emergency section of a government hospital in Manila early Wednesday when a man stabbed himself in the neck after his wife, who he found hanging inside their house, was declared dead on arrival.
Police Officer 3 Jupiter Tajonera of Manila Police District-Homicide division said Ricky Bedonio rushed his wife, Ruby, to the Sta. Ana Hospital from their house at Lotus Street in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila around 2:40 a.m.
Tajonera said Ruby,30, allegedly killed herself after being frustrated over her husband’s bad habits.
After his wife was pronounced DOA, Ricky pulled out a piece of broken glass from her pocket and stabbed himself.
Security officers tied down Ricky to a bed to calm him and have his wound treated.
Tajonera said, however, that they would investigate Ricky for his possible involvement in his wife’s death.
