Wednesday, October 17, 2012
THE Regional Trial Court (RTC) issued an order allowing a lesbian, accused of killing her grandparents and cousin, to undergo evaluation at the Southern Philippines Medical Center-Psychiatric Department.
In an order dated October 15, RTC Branch 17 Judge Evalyn M. Arellano-Morales directed Jail Inspector Jerry Grace G. Danao, OIC wardress of Davao City Jail, to bring Marivic Liloc, 22, to the SPMC Psychiatric Department for a neuropsychiatric evaluation.
“In order to determine whether she is fit to stand trial,” Morales, in her order, said.
Danao, in her letter addressed to Morales, informed the court that Liloc “was observed to appear unkempt and was unable to give responses to queries.”
“Likewise, she urinated in her lower garment and appeared restless and agitated. Moreover, during her detention, she was seen playing and putting feces in her mouth and is continually exhibiting aggressive behavior,” Danao’s letter reads.
Liloc is set to be arraigned on October 25.
However, a staff from the court said they are awaiting the result of the neuropsychiatric evaluation of the accused to determine whether she is fit to stand trial.
Liloc was transferred from Sasa Police Station to Davao City Jail on October 5.
She was arrested on September 27, after she allegedly killed Fidel, 75, Teodora, 74, and cousin Christian Mark Campano, 2, inside their house in Panacan, Davao City.
She is also accused of stabbing her two other cousins -- 11-year-old Christine Mae and two-month-old Cathlyn Campano -- who survived the assault.
No bail was recommended for the two counts of parricide case, which were raffled off to RTC Branch 17, and for the murder case, which was raffled off to RTC Branch 33, while a bail of P120,000 each for the two counts of frustrated murder cases.
Erma Liloc, aunt of the accused, earlier told Sun.Star Davao that there was also an incident when the respondent attempted to commit suicide by slashing her wrist.
