Police investigators in Camiguin cited jealousy as the primary motive when a former overseas Filipino worker (OFW) shot his wife before committing suicide outside a church.

Catarman police identified the victim as Ivy Linao who was shot to death by Celmar Linao, her estranged husband, reported PNA.

Police Officer 2 Ritchie Babia said the couple separated a few months ago after Linao allegedly discovered that her husband is into another relationship.

Investigation showed the husband pointed a .45-caliber pistol at his wife while the holy mass was ongoing beside the altar.

Witnesses said Celmar tried to shoot the victim inside the church but the firearm failed to discharge.

They added that the wife ran towards the side entrance of the church to flee but her movement was hampered as she was tagging along one of her kids.

Police said Ivy was hit by a lone bullet that went through her left arm as she tried to shield her face but it penetrated her skull causing her death.

After shooting her wife, Celmar then pointed the gun at his head and fired a single shot.

SPO1 Rosemarie Bana, Catarman police Women and Children’s Protection Desk officer, said the wife went to her office sometime last December to ask for advice on their marital situation.

Bana said the husband allegedly threatened the wife after he felt jealous but she did not file any complaint at the police station, instead she was advised to file a legal action before the Lupong Tagapamayapa.

Quoting a medical report from Dr. Analdo Abelda of the Catarman District Hospital, Babia said both persons died from gunshot wounds in the head.

Recovered from the crime scene was a .45-caliber pistol and two spent shells.
