ILOILO CITY – Two died in an apparent duel in Barangay (village) Cairohan in Bingawan town in Iloilo 6:45 p.m., Sunday.

The fatalities were identified as brothers-in-law Julie Castor, 37, and Rodolfo Cagunda, both married residents of the village.

Senior Inspector Jorgen Suegay, Bingawan police chief, said Castor and Caguna were having a drinking spree at the house of Castor when the killing happened.

Cagunda reportedly asked Castor for his P500 share of the assistance given by the village to victims of Supertyphoon Yolanda. This led to an argument during which Castor drew a bolo and hacked Cagunda several times in the body.

They were rushed to the Ricardo Y. Provido Memorial District Hospital in nearby Calinog town but were declared dead on arrival.

Police recovered at the crime scene were a cal.-38 revolver with 3 live ammunition, 3 empty shells and a bolo.

Bingawan, some 60 kilometers from Iloilo City, was reportedly one of the towns in Iloilo province hardest hit by Yolanda in 2013.
