    Woman held for murdering Aussie boyfriend in Philippines

    Woman held for murdering Aussie boyfriend in Philippines

    A Philippine woman has been arrested for murdering her Australian boyfriend and burying his body in the front garden of their home in the southern city of Davao, police said today. Corazon Donato, 30, confessed to conspiring with three men to beat Phillip Andrew Aitkin, 43, to death with metal pipes, said regional police investigator Senior Superintendent Francisco Villaroman.

    Following the confession police exhumed the body from the couple’s rented home in the southern city on Wednesday.

    Three local men were also arrested, Villaroman added.

    Police said Donato had told them she and Aitkin had a fight over their four-year-old son because he wanted to take the boy back to Australia.

    Aitkin, who worked as an engineer for a US firm in the United Arab Emirates, was reported missing to the police on Saturday, they added.

    The three male suspects “admitted to having used iron pipes to kill him after he was hogtied”, Villaroman said.

    Donato will be charged with murder and conspiracy to murder and the three men will all be charged with murder, police said.

    Perhaps he should have heeded the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs advice:

    We strongly advise you not to travel to Mindanao, including mainland Mindanao, the Zamboanga Peninsula and the Sulu Archipelago
