Teener pleads guilty
to rob-slay of teacher


A 17-year-old resident of Murcia, Negros Occidental, who pleaded guilty to robbing and killing a 73-year-old retired teacher, whose body was thrown into a deep well, has been sentenced to 17 years imprisonment.

Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Ray Alan Drilon yesterday said the 17-year-old, whose name is being withheld because he is a minor, had been charged with robbery and homicide for the death of Ma. Ana Quilantang Muzones at her residence in Brgy. Blumentritt, Murcia, Negros Occidental,  on July 14, 2010.

In his decision Tuesday, Drilon sentenced the 17-year-old to 14 years, eight months and one day to 17 years and four months imprisonment, after his being a minor was considered a privileged mitigating circumstance.

The accused was also ordered to pay the heirs of the victim P50,000 as civil indemnity.

The 17-year-old was accused along with his cousin, Carla Quiatchon Taliseo, a trusted helper of the victim, for the crime.

Information field in court said on July 14, 2010 the cousins entered the house of Muzones and took, among others, her bank book, black bag, P32,000, $86, and three bracelets worth P17,350 for  a total of P59,690.

They then hit Muzones with a hard object inside her house and then threw her body in a deep well causing her to drown while unconscious from  severe head injuries that caused her death.*CPG
