Witness Canete said that they had fallen asleep on the floor of the house and that he woke up around 1 p.m.
He claims that he opened his eyes to see how Paje approached the sleeping victim and seriously mutilated him. He died immediately.
Canete jumped out of a window and fled the house in the village of Bool East, on the island of Biliran.
