San Pablo City massacre suspect nabbed

The man who killed three people, including a 70-year-old widow in San Pablo City Tuesday afternoon is now behind bars, a police official told

Laguna Police director Senior Superintendent Gilbert Cruz said his men and members of the San Pablo City police finally caught Melvin Pido, who stabbed to death his former employer Zenaida Fronda, 70; her son Julius Fronda, 51; and their helper who went by the name Laleng inside their home at 284 Unson Street, 2C village in San Pablo City last week.

Cruz told that Pido did not fight back or attempt to escape again after police negotiated with him to leave the Fine Rock Hotel in Calejan village, San Pablo City at around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Pido will be charged with multiple murder, said CALABARZON police director, Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao.
On Tuesday morning, Pagdilao ordered his men to hunt down Pido who evaded arrest Monday.

Initial investigation, Pagdilao said, showed that Pido was the Frondas' driver until recently when he was sacked for theft.
