Campbell murder suspect remorseful

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao (15 October) -- As the Campbell case is on its fifth hearing, the accused is very apologetic for the crime he admitted committing.

Juan Duntugan, 25, who is now in his six month in jail at the Ifugao Provincial jail in Tiger, Hill in Kiangan said in an interview that there is only one thing that he wanted to delete in his life and that is killing US Peace Corps volunteer Julia Campbell, and he is repenting for what he has done.

"I really regret what happened and as I sit down here every hearing, I wish this thing did not happen to me. I wish I did not commit the crime," he said in a remorseful voice. " I appeal to the family of Julia to be considerate and to forgive me," he added.

With three kids aged 7, 5, 3 with the fourth due to be born in November this year, Duntugan said he missed his family. This time, his wife and other close relatives were not around at the courtroom.

Sitting alone on the bench for the accused, Duntugan said that the only thing he is hopeful about is for the crime to reduced from murder to homicide "since I admitted from the very beginning that I committed the crime."

According to Duntugan, his case should serve as a lesson to others so that they should control their anger in order that they will not do things impulsively then regret later. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
