Medrano, Yadao Cleared in Radioman’s Slay Case

LAOAG CITY (Aug. 13) – Lawyer Macario Arquillo said today that his client SPO4 Apolonio Medrano and the family of slain DZJC broadcaster Roger Mariano were “both losers so let us forget everything.” Arquillo uttered the remarks following the dismissal of Mariano murder case filed against Medrano and co-accused Basilio Yadao.

Manila RTC Judge Reynaldo Alhambra of branch 54 found no direct witness in the slay, hence, he acquitted the two accused. The court gave no credence to the lone witness’ testimony.
