OLONGAPO CITY – The main suspect in the 2018 killing of businessman Dominic Sytin has pleaded guilty during his arraignment at Olongapo City Regional Trial Court Branch 72, Wednesday morning.
Edgardo Luib, the gunman who shot and killed Sytin in Subic Freeport last year, also pleaded guilty to frustrated murder for shooting the victim’s bodyguard Efren Espartero.
Under the sala of Hon. Judge Richard Paradeza, Luib admitted that he is guilty of killing Sytin and shooting Espartero.
Luib’s lawyer Atty. Zaldy Ambon said that his client wants to come clean and admit the crime.
Sytin was the president and founder of United Auctioneers, a company engaged in the importation of secondhand vehicles.
Police investigations revealed that on that fateful day, Sytin was about to enter the Lighthouse Resort and Hotel with some companions when the suspects approached him and shot him in the head. He was dead on the spot.
The suspects got away using a motorcycle.
