A man was stabbed to death due to a land dispute at Barangay Banog-Banog in Negros Occidental’s Isabela town on Monday morning, September 18.

Bienvinedo Legaspi Sr., 63 years old, a resident of the town’s Barangay Sikatuna, succumbed to stab wounds on his body, police said.

The suspect, 42-year-old Rolly Alvarez, a resident of the said place, was confined in a hospital in Bacolod City, due to hack wounds.

A police investigation showed Legaspi allegedly trespassed on Alvarez’s lot and cultivated a portion of it.

Without any hesitation, Legaspi allegedly hacked the suspect with a bolo.

Alvarez managed to evade the attack.

The suspect also grabbed his bolo, and allegedly stabbed Legaspi twice.

Legaspi was rushed to the hospital, but was declared dead on arrival.
