A woman was killed after she was smashed with stone by her live-in-partner in Barangay Manawan, Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte last Wednesday afternoon.

Nenita Gomosa Gonong sustained head injuries. She was brutally killed by Carmelo Latawan Gonom, 37, a farmer.

A report reaching Police Regional Office-9 headquarters in Zamboanga City disclosed that around 4 p.m., Nenita, Carmelo and their two children were walking along a road in Barangay Manawan when they figured in a heated argument due to marital problem.

Amid their altercation, Carmelo grabbed a stone and struck it on Nenita’s head several times.
Nenita was rushed to the Jose Dalman Rural Health Office where she was declared dead on arrival.

Carmelo escaped after the incident but was arrested during a police follow-up operation. He was detained at the Jose Dalman Municipal Police Station pending the filing of charges in court. — Dan Toribio Jr.
