for killing Rivilla brothers

The houseboy who killed eight persons in a gruesome massacre more than 13 years ago in Bacolod City was sentenced Thursday to 120 years imprisonment for the murder of three of his minor victims, without eligibility for parole.

Bacolod Regional Trial Court Branch 52 Judge Raymond Joseph Javier found Bemon Barrios Gallo guilty beyond reasonable doubt for the murder of brothers Mark Anthony, 13 , Guillermo Benrico, 11 , and John Michael, 9, all surnamed Rivilla and sentenced him to reclusion perpetua on three counts.

The judge also ordered Gallo to pay the heirs of the minors P150,000 in civil indemnity, P150,000 in moral damages and P90,000 in exemplary damages.moremoremore
