Teen stabs own grandma to death, eats her heart [+video]

A teenager stabbed his own grandmother to death, ripped her heart out and ate it inside their house in Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental.

Superintendent German Garbosa, city police chief, identified the victim as Olivia Jalaman, 85 years old and a resident of Purok Kabukiran, Barangay Tapi.

She was killed by her 19-year-old grandson, Ruben Jalaman, who admitted the crime when he was arrested by cops after concerned citizens reported the incident at around 5 a.m. on Tuesday, August 4.

Neighbors told investigators that they found the victim's lifeless body covered with blood inside her home while the killer was just sitting in the corner, quiet and inattentive.

When asked about his motive, Ruben said at first it was only a "trip" but later claimed that the old woman was a witch. However, in an interview aired on primetime newscast TV Patrol, he said a "voice" ordered him to kill his grandmother.

Ruben denied that he was under the influence of intoxicating alcohol or drugs at the time. Garbosa has recommended the suspect to undergo a psychiatric examination and drug test.

He was charged with parricide.
