MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Justice (DOJ) has made headway in the murder case of international race car driver Enzo Pastor, who was killed in June 2014.
Assistant State Prosecutor Susan Villanueva penned a 13-page resolution, in which it was decided that there is probable cause to indict businessman Domingo “Sandy” De Guzman and Dahlia Pastor, wife of the slain racer, for the crime.
In the resolution, Villanueva said that they have gathered sufficient evidence to indict Dahlia for parricide, and De Guzman, for murder.
“[I]t is respectfully recommended that the attached informations for violation of Article 246 (Parricide) and Article (248 (Murder) of the Revised Penal Code be filed against respondents Dahlia Guerrero Pastor and Domingo De Guzman III y Villaruel, respectively,” the resolution read.
Senior Deputy State Prosecutor Richard Anthony Fadullon and. Prosecutor General Claro Arellano both upheld Villanueva’s findings against Dahlia and De Guzman.
It is believed that De Guzman and Dahlia Pastor are the brains behind the killing of Enzo Pastor, who was shot to death by PO2 Edgar Angel.
Angel had earlier claimed that he was paid P100,000 to murder the race car driver. It is believed that the murder was ordered by De Guzman and Dahlia, after their illicit love affair had been discovered by Enzo.
