Manahan no-show at Ramgen murder case hearing

November 6, 2012 11:23 pm 

MANILA, Nov. 6 — The girlfriend of murdered actor Ramgen Revilla failed to show up on Tuesday's resumption of hearing on bail petition filed by primary suspect Ramon Joseph "RJ" Bautista, the victim's younger brother, before the Paranaque City Regional Trial Court (RTC).

Janelle Manahan, who also survived the incident, was supposed to continue her testimony at the sala of Paranaque City RTC Branch 274 Presiding Judge Fortunito Madrona,

Manahan became emotional when she testified last Oct. 23 in relation to RJ's bail petition.

RJ, sister Maria Ramona, and five suspected hired guns face murder and frustrated murder charges for the shooting and stabbing to death Bautista, and the wounding of Manahan, at the Bautistas' house in BF Homes Subdivision, Paranaque on Oct. 28, 2011.

But on Tuesday, "Janelle had to attend a mandatory live-in seminar as condition for her continued employment with a real estate company," Manahan's lawyer Argee Guevarra said.

Guevarra said a real estate firm has hired Manahan as a manager.

Branch 274 court staff said the next scheduled hearing is on Nov. 20. (PNA)
