MANILA - Two suspects have surrendered to police and admitted killing the managing director of 360 Degrees System Corp. in the city of Taguig, authorities said.

Live-in partners Arvin Claudio and Maryann Capalad admitted killing their friend, Jill Manangan.

They told police they strangled her to death and dumped her body at an irrigation canal in Plaridel, Bulacan.

The crime was caused by argument over their business, investigators said.

Manangan's body was discovered May 17, and the victim's vehicle was found in Apalit, Pampanga.

The suspects have been charged for the crime at the Meycauayan fiscal's office.
