Murder suspect's arraignment set today-A A +A
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
A LESBIAN earlier accused of killing her grandparents and a cousin is set to answer the charges before the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Thursday.
RTC Branch 17 Judge Evalyn M. Arellano-Morales set the arraignment of Marivic Liloc, 22, at 8:30 a.m.
Liloc was earlier subjected to undergo a neuropsychiatric evaluation at the Southern Philippines Medical Center-Psychiatric Department after Jail Inspector Jerry Grace G. Danao, OIC wardress of Davao City Jail 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 said in a letter addressed to Morales.
The court granted the request "in order to determine whether she is fit to stand trial" on October 15.
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.
Liloc is also accused of stabbing her two other cousins, 11-year-old Christine Mae and two-month-old Cathlyn Campano. Both survived the assault.
No bail was recommended for the two counts of parricide case, which were raffled off to RTC Branch 17. The murder case was raffled off to RTC Branch 33. The judge, however, granted 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.
