After being in hiding for more than three months, a taxi driver who killed his pregnant live-in partner and her niece in a Mandaluyong condominium was arrested in Labo, Camarines Norte on Thursday.

According to a report from the Eastern Police District, Benjamin Paridnez Jr., 44, was arrested by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by the Regional Trial Court Branch 5 of Mandaluyong City.

Paridnez was arrested by joint operatives of the Mandaluyong City Police and the Labo Municipal Police Station at his residence in Barangay Tulay na Lupa.


Police said Pardinez stabbed his partner Ma. Rosula Pauni, 40, who was then five-months pregnant; and her Grade 4 niece last April 17, 2018 inside unit 205 of Ridgeway Residences in Barangay Barangka Ilaya, Mandaluyong City.


According to the Mandaluyong police, Paridnez killed his pregnant partner out of jealousy. Police found the already dead Pauni and her niece soaked in blood after sustaining multiple stab wounds.

The Mandaluyong police then started a hunt for the arrest of Paridnez.
