1. That on January 26, 1994, the plaintiff-appellee filed a

complaint against the defendant-appellant, in the following tenor:

That on or about the 16th day of December, 1993, in the

municipality of Sorsogon, province of Sorsogon, Philippines, and
within the jurisdiction of this Honorable Court, the above-named
accused, armed with a short firearm, with intent to kill and with
treachery and evident premeditation, did then and there, willfully,
unlawfully, and feloniously, shot one Gabriel Lorica, thereby
inflicting upon the latter mortal injury which directly caused his
death, to the damage and prejudice of his legal heirs.


2. That on May 10, 1994, the defendant-appellant filed his

answer to said complaint, as follows:

Manuel Delpino denied that he was the one who shot and
killed Gabriel Lorica. He testified that on December 16, 1993 at about
10:00 o’clock in the evening, he and Lanuza and Winnie were inside
the JB Line Terminal at Magsaysay St., Sorsogon, Sorsogon washing
buses. They started washing buses at about 7:00 o’clock in the
evening and finished at 1:00 o’clock in the morning. That he did not
leave the JB Line Terminal from the start up to the time he finished
washing all the buses in the terminal. They washed 18 buses and it
took them at least ½ hour to wash one bus.

Oscar Lanuza corroborated the testimony of Manuel Delpino.

He further testified that he and the accused worked from 7:00 o’clock
in the evening to past 12:00 midnight on December 16, 1993 inside the
JB Line Terminal. That Manuel Delpino did not leave the place
because he was beside him sleeping and it was a rainy night. He was
