Abra female board member, 3 others charged with murder

MANILA, Philippines – Police filed murder charges last Friday against a provincial board member of Abra and three others for the killing of a Filipino-Swiss in the capital town of Bangued town last Nov. 23.

Charged before the Abra prosecutor’s office were board member Ma. Elena Jenkins, Bartolome Sebastian, Isikiel Panabang, and a certain Joseph.

Director Samuel Pagdilao Jr., chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, said the filing of charges against Jenkins and her alleged cohorts finally solved the killing of Marc Gerald Alfred Aubord, 26, a resident of Barangay Causapan in Danglas, Abra.

Pagdilao said Aubord’s killing is the third “cold” or unsolved heinous crime solved by the CIDG in Abra and Apayao.

Senior Superintendent Pedro Austria Jr., CIDG-Cordillera chief, said the killing stemmed from a property dispute between Jenkins and her older sister, Gemma Franco, common-law wife of Aubord’s father Gerald.

Franco used to be supportive of Jenkins but differences between them ensued when the former met and began living in with the elder Aubord.

This allegedly prompted Jenkins to focus her anger toward her sister’s Swiss common-law husband, said Inspector Elmer Roberto Balaba, CIDG-Abra chief.

Wishing that the Swiss national would leave Abra for good, Jenkins allegedly ordered the killing of the young Aubord, which was an easier target than his father, Balaba said.

Records show that the young Aubord was crossing the Calaba Bridge in Bangued on his motorcycle when he was shot in the head. Police recovered an empty .45-caliber shell at the crime scene.

Austria said several witnesses pointed to Jenkins as the alleged mastermind and financier of the killing, while Sebastian and Joseph were tagged as the gunmen.

Panabang, for his part, was the one who supposedly identified and pinpointed the young Aubord to the gunmen.

Aside from the Aubord case, Pagdilao said the CIDG-Cordillera has also solved the killings of Michael Bernal also in Bangued last March and forester Kennedy Bayani in Luna, Apayao last May.

  1. Let justice be done though the heaven may fall….. I would like to commend the CIDG and our investigators for a job well done which lead to the filing of charges to those responsible to the murder of a Swiss-national . How about cases of abrenians who were victims of violence? Adda koma met justisya para kanyada.

  2. tama ka Procopio. I laud what the police did in solving this murder. But it seems abrenian victims seems to be treated as second fiddle in their own province.

    • Tama ka jepoy, kaso nakalimutan mo yata si takit bersamin. Di ba ang pagnanakaw sa kaban ng gobierno eh mas masahol pa sa pagpatay? Jepoy, pare, alam mo 700M ang utang ng Abra para lang sa nagiisang hospital na hanggang ngayon hindi pa tapos. ang gumohong pader nga niya eh 20M, hanggang ngayon, ganoon pa rin hindi pa naitatayo…. isang taon na a nakalipas?

  4. why is it that everytime that a killing occurs,they are always attributed to the LUNA,VALERA,BERNOS or SEARES clans? I think it is unfair to accuse them without concrete evidence. So EASY to ACCUSE but so HARD for the ACCUSED to bear the stigma of being branded FALSELY as a killer.

  7. Real stories of crimes in Abra cannot be found the in the police blotter and even in the investigations conducted by the Prosecutors Office. First hand stories is just there along the streets people are just afraid to come out and tell the truth for fear of their lives. Is seems that this government is unable to protects its citizens. To the PNP: give assurance for the safety of witnesses and they will come out to tell the truth….l

    • you hit the nail on the head,procop. me for one,gathers news and current events about abra in tricycle parking lines,barbershops and by the oldtimers at the plaza.where oftentimes their versions are more accurate than what is stated at our local newspaper and radio stations. As for the PNP,forget about your wish. they say PARA KANG SUMONTOK SA BUWAN ! but i agree with your wish.WISH KO LANG!
