Woman kills cop hubby

The Dumaguete City police is preparing parricide charges against the wife of a police officer, who reportedly accidentally shot dead her husband yesterday.

Police Officer 3 Jay Samson Jardenico, 37, of Block 8, Lot 123 of Sto. Rosario Heights in Barangay Junob, Dumaguete City, sustained a fatal gunshot wound in the chest that hit his heart, following a heated argument with his wife, Kenya Nocete Jardenico.

Initial investigation showed the couple already had disagreements while attending a party, so Kenya went home ahead on board their Pajero, and then went back to the party to fetch her husband. .
