TUGUEGARAO, Philippines – Two siblings were allegedly hacked dead by their cousin following a quarrel in Allacapan, Cagayan on Saturday.

Moises Cabiles, 42; his brother Roland, 36, and their cousin Ricky Tabalansa, 40, were having a drinking spree in the house of the suspect in Barangay Capagaran.

The elder Cabiles reportedly mentioned Tabalansa’s alleged complicated marital life, which made the latter furious, according to Cpl. Ariel Beltran, town police chief.

Roland and his brother decided to leave, but Tabalansa reportedly took out a bolo and hacked the victims.

Although wounded, Roland was able to grab the bolo and hacked  the suspect back.

The brothers died at the scene while Tabalansa was rushed to the Toran District Hospital in Aparri for treatment.
