Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. yesterday renewed his call for the restoration of capital punishment following the death of a Dela Salle student who was stabbed 14 times in  Dasmariñas, Cavite.

Revilla, who condemned the killing, reiterated his position on the restoration of capital punishment for heinous crimes, saying that “in these cases, the suspect should be killed.”

He also commended authorities on the immediate arrest of the suspect, who was identified as Angelito Erlano, 39, in Dasmariñas, Cavite.

Erlano is the principal suspect in the robbery and murder of Queen Leanne Daguinsin, a graduating computer science student of De La Salle University – Dasmariñas.

Daguinsin was found dead in her dormitory in Barangay Santa Fe, Dasmariñas last March 28. She bore multiple stab wounds in her body and arms.

Revilla, who gave P300,000 as reward money, cited the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Dasmarinas city government of Dasmariñas for the speedy investigation and apprehension of the perpetrator.

“We recognized our Provincial Director Col. Christopher Olazo and Mayor Jenny Barzaga who didn’t stop until the suspect was apprehended,” Revilla said.

He also challenged the police that this kind of crime will no longer happen.

Aside from Revilla’s P300,000, Cavite fourth district Rep. Elpidio Barzaga Jr. and Dasmariñas Mayor Jennifer Barzaga contributed 100,000 each while the city government offered P300,000.

Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla also offered a reward of P300,000, bringing the reward total to P1.1 million.
