Raps filed vs. 6 soldiers
for two counts of murder

Six Army soldiers were charged for two counts of murder before the Negros Occidental Provincial Prosecutor's Office Friday, in connection with the recent fatal shooting of two civilians in Cadiz City.

While only two of the six Army soldiers have tested positive for gunpowder nitrates, Supt. Edel Jose Manzano, Cadiz City police chief, yesterday said it will depend on the Provincial Prosecutor's Office whom they will recommend to face the appropriate charges.

Manzano, however, withheld the identities of the two Army soldiers who tested positive for gunpowder nitrates during paraffin testing. Two firearms of the Army soldiers – M-16 and M-14 assault rifles - were also found to have been fired, as shown by the positive result of the ballistic tests, he added. moremoremore
