Cop who killed wife, son, a shabu user since 2003

A policeman who shot to death his wife and teenage son was already a drug user since 2003.

No less than the policeman himself, identified as 38-year-old Police Officer 2 Roal Sabiniano, admitted his addiction since he was assigned at the Talipapa Police Station fourteen years ago.

This prompted Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar to consider the possibility that Sabiniano was under the influence of illegal drugs when he committed the gruesome crime.

Sabiniano peppered his wife Mary Jane and son Aljon Dave with bullets from his 9-mm caliber service firearm that led to the instant death of the two victims Sunday afternoon inside their home in Commonwealth, Quezon City.

The troubled policeman faced several cases years ago including robbery extortion in 2006, grave coercion, and acts of lasciviousness that led to his dismissal in 2008.

He was reinstated in 2012 when all the cases against him did not prosper.

Sabiniano said he killed his wife who he claims has been nagging him for quite some time due to financial issues.

“It was out of pressure. We always fight. She always nags about how we have no money. But she does not cook and even hired a helper to wash our clothes,” Sabiniano said.

The policeman also admitted his decision to stab his still breathing son right through his heart to make sure the young victim won’t survive the crime.

Eleazar revealed Sabiniano initially tested positive for shabu use but that they are still waiting for the official result of the drug test done by the Crime Laboratory. (Vanne Elaine P. Terrazola)
