MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court a robbery with homicide case against Michael Flores, the house boy who allegedly killed 75-year-old Zenaida Sison, mother of actress Cherry Pie Picache.

In a five-page resolution, the DOJ said “after a thorough evaluation of the evidence submitted, there is a reasonable ground to believe that respondent committed the crime of robbery with homicide against victim Zenaida Sison.”

Flores was also charged with qualified trespass to dwelling against a certain Lilibeth Lato before the Laguna court.

Flores confessed to the killing of Sison inside her house in Quezon City last Sept. 9.

In his four-page confession, Flores said he was Sison’s househelp for six months. He said he took shabu or methamphetamine hydrochloride before going to Sison’s house at 3 a.m. last Sept. 9.

He said he forced his way into the house of Sison using a screwdriver taken from a parked Toyota vehicle outside the house. Once inside, he took the money and pieces of jewelry. However, Sison woke up and shout for help.

“Nagsisigaw sya nang nakita nya ako sa loob ng kwarto nya. Duon ko na po sya inatake at napatay dahil nanlaban po sya,” he said.

Flores said he used a piece of wood from the broken door and knife from the kitchen to kill Sison.

After killing her, he said he went to another room and changed his shirt.

Contrary to his earlier statement, he said he acted alone when he committed the crime.
