By Justine Rich Talusan

A 56-YEAR-OLD man left by his live-in-partner allegedly butchered his two children before killing himself in their home in Davao City.

 Jessa Argon, 9; and her younger brother, John, were found dead and with stab wounds in their house at Purok 10-B, Bgy. 39-B, Davao City.

The suspect was their own father, Pajarito Castro Argon, who committed suicide after killing his own children.

An investigation showed the suspect suffered severe depression after his wife left him and their children.

It was not clear why Pajarito’s “wife” left them.

Found at the crime scene were two kitchen knives and a suicide note.

Authorities are investigating the incident.
