The suspect in the killing of Judge Ricky Begino, 49, in his house in Presentacion, Camarines Sur in the afternoon of June 12 is now under police custody.
Wilfredo Armea, a 72-year relative of Begino, willingly surrendered to the police, who came to his house in Brgy. Sta Maria, Presentacion at 9:00AM on June 13.
Armea confessed to going to the house Begino, at 5:ooPM, and shooting the judge as soon as he opened the door due to the victim’s manipulation on a land dispute between their families.
Begino, the presiding judge of the municipal trial courts in San Jose, Lagonoy, and Presentacion, was declared dead-on-arrival at the hospital after being shot in the neck and other parts of his body.
