Robbery with homicide
raps vs. 2 in doc’s slay

Bacolod City Police Director, Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, yesterday assured the relatives and friends of Dr. Andres Gumban that those who brutally stabbed him to death in his house in Brgy. Alijis Thursday will be prosecuted.

De la Paz said they are still waiting for the necessary documents, including the results of an autopsy conducted on Gumban, so they can file robbery with homicide charges against the suspects before the City Prosecutor’s Office this week.

He said the two suspects, Fof Pascual Jr., 18,of Barangay Tadlong, Sagay City, and a 16-year-old from Cadiz City, whose name is being withheld as he is a minor, are believed to have intended to rob the doctor but were foiled by neighbors.moremoremore

Lipat-on special polls
winners proclaimed


Seventy-five percent of the voters in Barangay Lipat-on, Calatrava, turned out at a special election held Saturday, that was peaceful and orderly this time, Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez said yesterday.

The special election was held after the COMELEC had declared a failure of the October 15, 2010 polls, and directed all its officials to vacate their posts.

A failure of election was declared because the path to the polling place in 2010 had been blocked and only 249 out of 800 voters in the barangay were able to vote, Suarez said.moremoremore

Two killed rebels
may be assassins

The military yesterday said the two suspected New People’s Army assassins, killed in an encounter Saturday with government troopers in Canlaon City, Negros Oriental, may also be among those who killed a government militiaman, in front of his wife and two children, in Isabela, Negros Occidental.

Col. Francisco Patrimonio, 302nd Infantry Brigade commander, said the slain CAFGU member, identified as Paquito Lacton, 39, was a resident of Brgy. Budlasan, Canlaon City, but was waylaid and shot dead by NPA rebels in Brgy. Makilignit, Isabela, on June 8.
