MANILA, June 15 – A elderly couple were shot dead by three unidentified suspects before burning their rice mill in Sitio Capuan, Barangay Natubo, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental Thursday morning.

Senior Insp. Bryan Inojaldo, Jasaan Police Station officer-in-charge, identified the victims as Jaime Sabunod, 63, and wife Erlinda, 65. The assault against the two took place around 8:30 a.m, he said.

Inojaldo said the couple were killed by the suspects using a .45 caliber pistol afterwhich, burned their rice mill located 100 meters away from their residence.

He said the police were still investigating the incident to determine the motive behind the attack, adding there is a possibility of revenge since Jaime was reported involved in the killing of someone in 2000, of which he was sentenced to an 11-year jail term he already served prior to his death.
