A woman slit the throat and stabbed her 15-year-old best friend because of jealousy in Agusan del Norte, John Consulta reported in “Saksi” Thursday night.

Rakman Panondi, 22, and “Gina” (not her real name) are best friends, but their friendship was tested when they fell in love with the same man.


According to Rakman, the teenager who’s the same age as Gina is already her boyfriend. But everything changed when her boyfriend got attracted to Gina.

The boy’s attention was already focused on Gina. And Rakman was very jealous of it.
