MANILA, Philippines — A Manila court has issued a warrant for the arrest of the widow of slain Batuan, Masbate Vice Mayor Charlie Yuson III over a libel suit filed against her by Sandra Cam of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

Lalaine Yuson is facing three counts of libel before the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 49 for accusing Cam of masterminding her husband’s killing.

Judge Daniel Villanueva said the court found probable cause to issue the warrant for Yuson’s arrest and recommended a bail of P30,000.
