MANILA, Philippines – A woman full of mud all over her body was found dead inside a nipa hut in Cabalaoangan Norte in Rosales, Pangasinan.

She was identified as Lilia Garcia, a 58-year-old widow.

Investigations showed Garcia came from a drinking session with suspects Edmundo Pinquihan and Manuel Mariano.

Pinquihan and Mariano reportedly abused Garcia physically before they raped and killed her.

However, Pinquihan, who is allegedly Garcia’s boyfriend, denied the accusation, saying he did not force Garcia to have sex with him.

He even claimed that he and his friends brought Garcia home after their drinking session.

Pinquihan and Mariano will be facing charges of rape and homicide. – from a report by Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News Pangasinan
