Consulate in Toronto confirms deaths of Filipino woman, daughter in stabbing

The Philippine Consulate General in Toronto confirmed on Wednesday the death of a Filipino woman and her daughter after they were stabbed last week.

The Toronto police identified the victims as 44-year-old Elvie Sig-Od and 20-year-old Angelica Sig-Od, both from Toronto.

The victims were reportedly inside their vehicle when Elvie’s former husband, Godfrey Sig-Od, stabbed them to death.

Elvie and Angelica were both pronounced dead at the scene.

“The Consulate will coordinate the repatriation of remains of the mother and daughter who were both Canadian citizens at the time of their deaths,” Philippine Consul General in Toronto Orontes Castro said in a statement.

“The Consulate General will also continue to monitor this case accordingly. The Philippine Government expresses its sincerest condolences and sympathies to the family,” he added.

The suspect was arrested at the scene. He was charged with two counts of second-degree murder. — Mel Matthew Doctor/BM, GMA News
