BACOLOD CITY––A job order worker of San Carlos City was shot to death Monday, months after her husband was also killed.

Maria Elena Belos Peque, 40, was on board a tricycle on the way to the San Carlos City Hall when she was shot by a gunman on a motorcycle, the police said.


The victim suffered a gunshot wound on the head. She was rushed to the San Carlos City Hospital where she was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.


“It is possible that she was killed over a land dispute that allegedly also was the motive for the killing of her husband early this year,” the police said.

Mayor Renato Gustilo said Peque was a job order worker assigned at the city government’s accounting office.

Gustilo said there were talks that she was killed because of an unpaid debt.
