BAGUIO CITY – Probers of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) recently filed robbery with homicide charges against a 39-year old woman who is the primary suspect in the brutal murder of 15-year old girl last May 24, 2016.
Senior Superintendent George D. Daskeo, BCPO acting city director, said the robbery with homicide charges were already transmitted by investigators to the city prosecutor’s office for proper disposition as police operatives are conducting a manhunt for the arrest of the killer maid.
“We already made appropriate coordination’s with various police stations in the Cordillera and Ilocos regions so that we will be able to ascertain the whereabouts of the suspect,” Daskeo stressed.
The police official identified the suspect as Marites Rilloraza alias Marites Judan, Florence Macaalay and Brenda Ducusin Mendoza, 39, married and a native of Burgos, La Union.
According to him, the suspect used the name Marites Judan when she applied as a housemaid of a family in Pinsao Proper last May 22, 2016 where she was subsequently hired on the spot by the parents of her victim.
Judan allegedly stabbed the 15-year old daughter of her employer when they were left inside their residence Tuesday morning before she carted away the young girl’s mobile phone among other valuables.
The suspect even requested the older brother of the victim to bring her to the market in order for her to get her salary but upon reaching Naguilian Road, she asked the victim’s older brother to drop her there.
When her brother went back to their house, he failed to find his younger sister there, but upon searching, he found her lifeless body inside their comfort room with multiple stab wounds.
Probers revealed the victim sustained thirteen stab wounds in the different parts of her body that caused her instantaneous death.
Daskeo is appealing to the public to help in the arrest of the killer maid to bring justice to the victim.
Earlier, the suspect was said to have been charged for qualified theft by a previous employer in Aurora Hill after she carted away the valuable items when she served there as a housemaid.
Rilloraza or Judan was also issued a warrant of arrest by a court in La Union for adultery among other cases.
Daskeo called on whoever knows the whereabouts of the suspect to immediately report to them so her arrest could be facilitated.
