Police said that as Nelia shouted, their daughter Christine woke up, only to find an ice pick on her mother’s body.  Christine removed the ice pick and allowed her mother to escape, police said.

After that, the suspect again attempted to stab his wife outside the house using a Phillips screw driver but was pacified by her daughter.

The victim was brought to the Mandaluyong City Medical Center while the suspect is under the custody of Mandaluyong police, and is waiting inquest proceedings.    /muf
