40 years behind bars: SC affirms Jason Ivler’s muder conviction over road rage killing
The Supreme Court (SC) has affirmed the conviction of Jason Ivler, the nephew of musician Freddie Aguilar, for the road rage killing of the son of former presidential chief of staff Renato Ebarle Sr.
The SC has issued a resolution which junked Ivler’s petition which sought the reversal of his conviction which was upheld by the Court of Appeals (CA).
In its ruling, the high tribunal said the petition was dismissed “for failure to sufficiently show that the Court of Appeals (CA) committed any reversible error in the assailed Decision as to warrant the exercise of the Court’s appelate jurisdiction.”
The Quezon City regional trial court sentenced Ivler to suffer imprisonment of 40 years for being guilty of murder for the killing of Renato Ebarle Jr.
Ivler was also ordered to pay P75,000 in civil indemnity, P75,000 moral damages, P75,000 exemplary damages, P616,590 actual damages, P9,124,206 as compensation for loss of earning capacity, and the cost of suit.
The victim was killed during a traffic altercation with Ivler on Nov. 18, 2009.
