A JOBLESS woman allegedly killed two young daughters inside their house in San Mateo, Rizal province.
Melissa Sumanting, 33, is facing parricide charges for the killing of Rosalina Castro, 2, and her four-month-old sister Romily inside their home at Phase 2, Sitio Buntong Palay, Barangay Silangan in San Mateo, said San Mateo Police Superintendent Ruben Marte Piquero.
The crime was discovered Tuesday afternoon but police suspected that the victims died of suffocation earlier in the day.
The police added that the suspect tried to kill herself by slitting her wrists before turning on her daughters. Sumanting’s husband was not around when the crime was committed.
