Have you ever been involved in a fight with your romantic partner? It’s natural to have disagreements with your significant other from time-to-time. While some petty fights are easily resolved, there are other arguments which lead to serious complications and in this horrific case – murder. The victim was reportedly stabbed to death by her jealous husband inside their home in Cavite City.
Based on a report by GMA-7‘s news program “Saksi,” the victim was identified as housewife Theresa Taburna. The prime suspect in this horrific murder case is none other than her own jealous husband, Augustin Taburna III, who works as a seaman. Mr. Taburna allegedly killed his own wife after he accused her of being unfaithful.
Local authorities from Cavite already conducted a manhunt operation to catch the suspect, who immediately fled the scene. In an interview, P01 Jessie Villanueva was quoted as saying:
“Ang tinitignan naming motibo ay selos. Dahil base na rin po sa salaysay ng ating testigo na kasambahay ng nasabing mag-asawa, diumano ay nagdududa itong lalaki na may ibang karelasyon ang kanyang asawa.”
The lifeless body of the victim was discovered in the bathroom, situated on the second floor of their home. According to the sole witness – an unidentified house maid, the married couple had a heated argument prior to the victim’s untimely demise.
Moments before the victim was killed, raised voices could be heard from the second floor of their household. To shield the couple’s two young children from their nasty argument, the house maid brought the children downstairs.
A few minutes later, silence ensued followed by the jealous husband’s departure using their car. Upon checking, the house maid was shocked upon discovering the lifeless body of Theresa.
The victim’s mother was also a witness of Augustine’s controlling and manipulative behavior. In an interview with a local news outlet, the grieving mother narrated:
“Sobrang pagmamahal at saka gusto niya, lahat sa kaniya naka-report. Kung anong oras umuwi, kung anong ginagawa sa opisina.”
