    Suspects in killing Phl broadcaster charged

    FOUR suspects in the killing of broadcaster Michael Diaz Melo have been charged with murder, according to Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma.
    In a statement issued on Thursday, Coloma said the Aquino government commended the Surigao del Sur Police Provincial Office for the immediate filing of murder case against the four suspects.
    He said the government also thanked the policemen for their hard work that led to the filing of the murder case against the suspects last December 10.
    Melo was shot in Tandag City in Surigao del Sur province last December 6.
    The complaint for murder was filed last Dec. 10 with the Office of the Prosecutor against April F. Melo (wife), Arnel Fernandez, Bernie Ann Fernandez, and Police Officer 1 Hildo L. Patrimonio.
    "We hope this will hasten the process for the filing of the necessary information in court, thus, leading to the eventual arrest of the perpetrators," Coloma said.
    Melo, national supervisor of Prime Radio FM Dok Alternatibo, was riding his motorcycle when the suspects also on a motorbike shot him at Purok Palmera, Mabua Village, Tandag City, at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 6.
