Initial investigation showed that the trio was having a drinking spree at around 9:50 p.m. when they engaged in a heated argument.

The altercation led Prete and Tilasan to stab Pahigo, resulting to his death.

The suspects were arrested during a follow-up operation and were detained at the Labuan Police Station.

The cadaver was taken to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination while police have prepared charges against the suspects. (Dan Toribio)
