A gunman on a motorcycle shot and killed yesterday afternoon the judge who last year acquitted a New People’s Army (NPA) commander accused of killing two soldiers 15 years ago.
His wife sustained a bullet wound in the left arm and is under observation in a hospital.
Police said 45-year-old Judge Jude Erwin Alaba of Baler Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 91 was shot in the chest.
He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
