4 arrested in rape-killing of 9-year-old in Cavite
Four men were arrested for the rape of a nine-year-old girl who was found dead under a house in Dasmariñas in Cavite last Jan. 5.
Police arrested the four suspects in the killing of Zosimae Magluyan, 9, in separate follow-up operations, radio dzBB reported early Saturday.
The report said those arrested included Ryan and Kenneth Delequena, and Jayson and Rodel Cubian, all neighbors of the victim.
A separate report on "Saksi" said the four even carried the coffin of the victim at her burial.
The victim was found Jan. 5 under a house in Barangay San Lorenzo 2 in Dasmariñas, Cavite. She was found tied, gagged and without her underwear.
Investigators suspected she was raped and then left under the house to die of hunger.
The victim had been missing since Christmas Day.
The dzBB report said neighbors had noted a bad smell under the house but did not think it was Magluyan. — ELR, GMA News
