The suspect, identified as Eric Capulong, is now under the custody of the Manila Police District (MPD) Special Mayor’s Reaction Team (SMaRT).
Capulong’s live-in partner, identified as 39-year old Concepcion Beldad, is an employee of the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB).
“It appears that the suspect and the victim had a heated argument because the latter tried to break up with the former. Investigation revealed that the suspect hit the victim with a hammer on her head,” the police report said.
“Relatives of the victim rushed her to Tondo Medical Center but was pronounced dead-on-arrival,” it added.
