Couple killed in Laguna identified


Los Baños, Laguna: The couple who were shot and burned to death inside their car in Los Banos on Monday morning were Liezel Morales, 36, and her husband Merlito, said Laguna Provincial Director Senior Supt. Florendo Saligao. The couple were onboard a black Toyota Avanza when two motorcycle-riding men shot their vehicle several times then hurled a grenade that set it on fire. Supt. Romeo Desiderio, Los Baños police chief said the investigators were looking into a possible drug-related motive to the killing because they discovered bundles of cash inside the burned vehicle and the plate number of the Avanza did not match the vehicle’s registration documents.
