Cop, 8 others arrested and charged for Palawan lawyer slay

A police officer and eight other suspects were arrested and are now facing murder charges for the killing of Palawan lawyer Eric Jay Magcamit last Nov. 17.

In a statement on Thursday, the Philippine National Police said among those indicted was Police Senior Master Sergeant Ariel Pareja.

Pareja is now under restrictive custody of the Palawan Police Provincial Office.

Also named respondents in the complaint filed on Wednesday before the Palawan Provincial Prosecutor’s Office were Jazer del Rosario, Marcelino Quioyo, and six other John Does.

Mimaropa PNP Regional Director Brig. Gen. Pascual Muñoz said Pareja has been moonlighting as a bodyguard for Quioyo who was involved in a court case over a land dispute where Magcamit was representing the other party.
