Teenage stepmom whips baby to death

BAUAN, Batangas – A 15-month-old baby boy was whipped to death and slammed against the wall by his father’s 16-year-old live-in partner inside their house here.

Supt. Renato Cantos Mercado, Bauan Police Station chief, said a murder case was filed in court yesterday against the teenage suspect (name withheld), of Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro.

The suspect is the live-in partner of the victim’s father identified as Exequiet T. Bisa, 23, of Barangay Inicluban, here, based on the investigation report of officers-on-case PO1s Victor Hernandez and Maria Marilou Cristina B. Ermita.

In an interview, the suspect said she had just finished doing laundry when she heard the boy crying.

“Hindi ko maipaliwanag kung bakit ko ginawa ‘yun,” said the suspect, adding she was tired and hungry when she committed the crime.

A neighbor, Apollo Manalo, informed the police of the incident, it was learned. (Vicky Aclan Florendo)
