Two more people linked to the brutal killing of Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr.'s half-brother Ramgen Bautista were placed under police custody early Monday.
Parañaque City police chief Senior Superintendent Billy Beltran identified the two as Glaiza Vista and Norwin dela Cruz, radio dzBB's Sam Nielsen reported.
The report quoted Beltran as saying the two had been placed in a safe house before 7 a.m. Monday, but would not give other details.
Beltran also said the police are now coordinating with the city prosecutor's office to afford "due process" for the two, the report added.
He said the two may face murder and frustrated murder charges for the fatal shooting and stabbing of Ramgen, 23, last October 28 in his Parañaque residence. Another victim, Ramgen's girlfriend Janelle Manahan, survived the attack.
Still, Beltran said there is no warrant for their arrest at this time as they had not yet been formally charged.
The dzBB report said Beltran received word at 4 a.m. Monday that Vista and Dela Cruz were going to "surrender."
Vista and Dela Cruz allegedly had contacts with the hired killers of Bautista.
Also implicated in the are Ramgen's younger siblings — Ramona Bautista, 22, who fled the country days after the incident; and Ramon Joseph "RJ" Bautista, 18, who is already in police custody.
Their mother, Genelyn Magsaysay, has denied that her children would resort to killing each other to settle their differences.
Apart from RJ, also currently detained are two other suspects in the crime, John Michael Nartea and Roy Francis Tolisora, who allegedly carried out the attack upon supposed orders from RJ and Ramona.
