Arraignment of lesbian in massacre postponed-A A +A
Friday, October 26, 2012
THE Regional Trial Court (RTC) Friday postponed the arraignment of a lesbian who allegedly killed her grandparents and a cousin in Panacan, Davao City, pending the result of the psychiatric test.
RTC Branch 17 lawyer Evalyn Morales reset the arraignment of Marivic Liloc, 22, to December 13, as they await the result of the neuropsychiatric evaluation of the Southern Philippines Medical Center-Psychiatric Department.
With the result of the evaluation, the court would be able to determine whether the accused is fit to stand trial.
Jail Inspector Jerry Grace Danao, wardress of Davao City Jail, wrote a letter before the court informing 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 RTC dated October 15.
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.
Liloc 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 was charged with two counts of parricide case for killing Fedil Liloc, 75; and Teodora Liloc, 74; a murder case for the death of her cousin Christian Mark Campano, 2; and two counts of frustrated murder for stabbing her 11-year-old, and one-month-old cousins.
The parricide cases were raffled off to RTC Branch 17, while the murder and frustrated murder cases were raffled to RTC Branch 33, a family court.
Liloc was transferred from Sasa Police Station to Davao City Jail in October 5. (Arianne Caryl N. Casas)
