  • Filipino police officer Jonel Nuezca sparked public outrage after killing his neighbors last December due to an argument about firecrackers.
  • The video went viral on social media and Nuezca later surrendered to authorities.
  • He has since been dismissed from his service, although he recently pleaded “not guilty” for the double murder.

Off-duty police officer Jonel Nuezca made headlines in the Philippines after shooting his neighbors Sonya and Frank Anthony Gregorio in front of his teen daughter. The brutal killing happened last month in Paniqui, Tarlac. Hours later, Nuezca later surrendered himself to authorities in Rosales, Pangasinan.

According to recent reports, however, Nuezca has since pleaded not guilty to the double murder charge filed against him. This is despite the overwhelming proof – his crime has been captured on film by neighbors and went viral online, sparking outrage from the public.

On December 20, Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca killed the Gregorios in broad daylight.

Police Regional Office 3 public information officer Lt. Col. Soledad Elifanio said that Nuezca entered a “not guilty” plea at a local court last January 7. The next hearing has been scheduled on February 4.

Nuezca shot the mother and son at point-blank range.
He later pleaded “not guilty” despite the video evidence.

Several days after surrendering, Nuezca later expressed regret about what he did and even asked the police for help for his family.

Meanwhile, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police Gen. Debold Sinas recently confirmed that Nuezca has been officially dismissed from the PNP as an administrative penalty.

Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, the former PNP chief, said that the killer cop deserves death penalty.

The senator told the media:

“The cold-blooded killing by the policeman is double murder and a heinous crime that deserves the death penalty, but until now, my death penalty bill is not moving.”
