I, GOWEN GETTER, 39 years old, married, and a resident of Ampao

Street, Barangay Banago, Bacolod City, Philippines, after having been duly
sworn to in accordance with law, hereby depose and say THAT:

1. I am the respondent in the above-entitled Criminal Case for the

crime of Parricide under Article 246 of the Revised Penal Code;

2. That on February 14, 2018, at around 9:00 P.M., I went to my

parent’s residence at Malasin Street, Barangay Cabug, Bacolod
City, to ask for my mother’s assistance in connection with my
outstanding obligation with ABC Lending Company;

3. That instead, of listening for my plea for her assistance, my mother

berated me to the extent of calling me named names, and that
sensing that I won’t be able to solicit her assistance in connection
with my above-stated problem, I decided to leave my mother’s

4. That while on my way to the door, to leave my mother’s house, to

my surprise, my mother pushed me hard that resulted to my
falling down on the floor;

5. That while lying frustrate and helpless on the floor, my mother
started kicking me and threatened to stab me, thus, when she
attacked me using her knife, I kicked her in order that I won’t be
hit by her thrust and tried to disarm her;

6. That a scuffle between us ensued to the extent that I did not know
that I was able to disarm her and hurt her with the weapon that
she was trying to use on me;

7. That I execute this affidavit to vehemently deny that I

intentionally killed my mother whom I dearly loved, as what I
have done was only to defend myself against her unwarranted
aggression and to preserve my life.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto affix my signature this

23rd day of February, 2018, in the City of Bacolod, Negros Occidental.


SUBSCRIBED AND SWORN to before me, this 23rd day of
