Only one of those residing in the house could have killed the victim?

Second. Somewhat inconsistently with his claim that the victim was a suicide, accused-appellant disputes the trial court’s conclusion that only one of those residing in the house could have killed the victim because the police found no sign of a break-in. Accused-appellant says that in the morning of June 1, 1996, he found that the kitchen door leading outside was open.

Accused-appellant’s contention must fail. Accused-appellant admitted that it did not occur to him that an intruder was in the house in the evening of May 31, 1996 because “No person could get inside because the windows were closed and besides the doors were closed.”

Significantly, Erlinda Arrojado Magdaluyo testified that accused-appellant also said that no person could get inside the house because the doors and the windows were closed. Accused-appellant never told Erlinda that the kitchen door was open that morning. Indeed, Erlinda testified that “it is not possible that somebody would enter the house as the doors were securely locked . . . with additional barrel bolts, and the windows have grills.”
