American gets lifetime jail term for killing Filipina wife in 2019
A Colorado, USA court has meted out life imprisonment without parole to an American found guilty of killing his Filipino wife.
Court records show that until now the body of the 28-year-old victim has not been found.
Convicted Dane Kallungi, 42, is found guilty of first-degree murder for killing his wife Jepsy Amaga Kallungi in 2019.
Also, the court found him guilty of tampering with a human body.
In March 2019, the victim was reported missing. But police investigation has indicated that Dane killed his wife.
Dane had gone into hiding midway into the murder case probe, until authorities arrested him in New Mexico and brought him back to Colorado.
During the remainder of the investigation process, Dane admitted that he killed his wife by strangulation, and threw her body away.
Until now, the victim's body could not be found.
The victim's family had said that before Jepsy was reported missing, she managed to tell them that her husband subjected her to physical abuse. —with a report from Dave Llavares/LBG, GMA Integrated News.
