Woman kills lover for losing money in casino

Philippines: Ernesto Chaves Mateo, a 54-year-old retired special police officer 1, was shot dead before dawn Saturday by his live-in partner, who got pissed off when he lost a big amount of money in a casino in Metro Manila’s Pasay City.

The suspect, Cynthia Baybayon, 48, is now detained at the Homicide Section of Manila Police District (MPD) while awaiting formal charges of homicide to be filed against her.

The tabloid ‘Pilipino Star Ngayon’, quoting police reports, today said neighbours of the couple called in the police after they heard four shots fired at Mateo’s place at 1911 Campillo Street, in Manila’s Malate district, at around 4am yesterday.

Police said they found the bloodied body of Mateo, who was shot fatally by Baybayon, an area supervisor in a carpark who resides on Lourdes Street, Pasay City, minutes after they arrived at his house following a bad night at the casino.

MPD Police Officer 3 Rommel del Rosario said the money lost got the couple into a heated argument, where the victim took his .22-calibre pistol from its holster and tried to scare the suspect. But Baybayon managed to grab the firearm from Mateo and shot him.

Mateo, who used to be a member of the Pasay City Police District, had availed of an early-retirement programme offered by government, and had since been leading a life of leisure. (Correspondent)
