A 19-year-old college student and his 20-year-old girlfriend are now facing infanticide charges after they left their newborn baby girl in a banana plantation near their school in Barangay Camingawan, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, early Saturday morning, the police said yesterday.
The baby, who was born at about 11 p.m. Friday, was found naked and bitten by ants at about 2:40 a.m. Saturday, Police Officer 3 Julieta Dimpo, Kabankalan Police Women and Children Protection Desk assistant head, said.
Dimpo said the baby was crying when she was being cleaned at the barangay clinic. She was later transferred to the Lorenzo D. Zayco District Hospital in Kabankalan, where she was declared dead on arrival.

to Aquino's SONA
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
Locales from the different sectors of the Negros Oriental community expressed varied opinions on the sixth and final State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III during the opening of the 16th Congress at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City yesterday.
While giving him a rating of between five and eight, on a scale of one to 10, the reactors said they still want to see the President follow through with certain concerns and other issues as he enters the final stretch of his term ending in mid-2016.
“Though there are things I was expecting to be included (in his SONA) but not mentioned, I felt the sincerity of his words,” Salustiano Jimenez, Department of Education division of schools superintendent of Negros Oriental, said.
