Police yesterday filed rape with homicide charges against two brothers for the molestation and killing of a 10-year-old girl in Brgy. Zone 14-B, Talisay, City, Negros Occidental, Friday last week.
Supt. Boots Aseo, Talisay City police officer-in-charge, yesterday said that the result of the autopsy of the victim showed that she was molested.
The 10-year-old victim, Marchela Sayo, was found hogtied with her head covered with plastic under a sink at the boarding house of her uncle.
Almar Duron, 20, and his 17-year-old brother, who is the caretaker of the boarding house owned by the uncle of the victim, were both arrested by the police, after the commission of the crime.
Almar confessed to the crime, Aseo said.
The younger suspect is now under the custody of the Talisay City Social Welfare and Development Office, while Almar is now detained at the police jail.
Almar, in a radio interview, admitted that he used to take illegal drugs. But he claimed he was not under the influence of liquor or illegal drugs, when he committed the crime.*
