Complaints for parricide have been filed against the husband of slain Bien Unido, Bohol Mayor Gisela Boniel in connection with her death.
According to a report on "24 Oras," Provincial Board Member Niño Rey Boniel and four others were made the subjects of the complaint for the crime. Two of the respondents are expected to turn state witnesses.
Four other suspects remain at large.
The parricide complaint is on top of the two counts of kidnapping and serious illegal detention filed against Niño before the Tagbilaran's prosecutor's office, based on the statement of Mayor Boniel's friend, Angela Leyson, and her 17-year-old child.
Gisela was allegedly abducted and killed by her husband over personal problems.
Search and retrieval operations are ongoing for the missing body of Gisela.
Special diving equipment of the Philippine Navy will be used to locate the body, which is reportedly lying 700 feet from the surface. —GMA News
