Suspects In The Killing Of A Woman In Baguio City Charged With Murder And Theft

The two female suspects in the killing of a 27-year-old woman in Loakan Proper, Baguio City have been charged with murder and theft. The two suspects who have been identified as Jareas Simeon and Jennifer Jacaban have been arrested and now in the custody of the Baguio City police.

The two women admitted that they were behind the killing of Buena Sol Arro who was also their housemate in the same apartment in Loakan Proper. Arro's lifeless body was found by her boyfriend last Wednesday (January 7) hidden inside a cabinet beneath a sink inside of her apartment. Arro was also reportedly stuffed inside a large suitcase.

The police investigation also showed that an argument over the unpaid rent for the apartment was the root behind Arro's murder. Arro was reportedly arguing with the suspects when it turned into a physical fight which resulted to Arro being hit behind the head with a metal pipe.

Jaime Rodrigo Leal of the Baguio City police crime lab confirmed that the cause of death was due to traumatic head injuries. "Yung pipe consistent naman sa injuries ng biktima," Leal said in an ABS-CBN report.

The two suspects also took away some of the victim's belongings after committing the crime. These include a laptop, mobile phones, a digital camera, and some cash. The gadgets have been recovered from them.

"Naifile na natin yung kaso, na-inquest na namin sila kahapon, kinasuhan natin sila ng murder and theft," said Police Senior Superintendent Rolando Miranda, Director of the Baguio City police, in an interview with GMA News.

Arro hails from the town of Sison in Pangasinan. She was an employee of one of the companies at the Philippine Economic Zone Authority site in Baguio City.
