MANILA, Philippines — A village chief was killed in Cavite Tuesday, according to reports reaching the Camp Crame national police headquarters.


Raul Bernal was stabbed to death at Dra. Salamanca St., San Roque around 4:30 am, reports said.


The suspect, identified as Arjay Quilan, has been arrested, reports said.


Although the motive for the killing is not clear, police are not discounting the possibility that it might be related to the barangay elections this October.


On Monday, Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao said they were trying to determine election hotspots to preempt an escalation of violence.
