lice: Construction worker nabbed
in slay of colleague using fake name
The construction worker nabbed for shooting dead his colleague on Saturday was found to be using a fictitious name as he has an arrest warrant for murder, Station 9 commander, Chief Insp. Placido Gentoleo said, yesterday.
Rafael Oñate, 40, of Brgy. Ilijan, Bago City, who was initially identified as “Allan Alayon”, 40, of Ilog town, Negros Occidental, was arrested for shooting Ryan Española, 32, of Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, in the chest in Purok Fatima, Brgy. Sum-ag, Bacolod, over an old grudge, Gentoleo said.
However, further investigation revealed that Oñate was using a different name, and that he has an arrest warrant for murder issued by Regional Trial Court Judge Frances Guanzon, who denied him bail, Gentoleo also said.
He said Oñate has been endorsed to the Bago City police who are preparing the charges against him for the death of Española.
