An American national has been arrested for killing his Filipina lover here, local police said today.

Michael Lamphier, 49, a retired US Navy man, is facing homicide charges for shooting Michiko Doque, 39, late last Saturday, according to Senior Superintendent Rene Espera, Davao city police chief. Espera said the couple had a heated argument after Lamphier arrived from a drinking session with friends at a bar in downtown Davao.

"Neighbors told investigators they heard a single gunshot from the couple's home so they called police," Espera said.

The victim died from a gunshot wound in the stomach, he added.
