Email from defendant's father may hurt his chances at release

Posted: Jul 12, 2018 4:17 PM Updated:

One defendant's father may have hurt his chances at release. Accused killer, Jonathan Ross Pangelinan, appeared in court on Thursday.

According to prosecution, the victim's mother had received an email from the defendant's father.

Pangelinan's father apparently apologized for his son's actions, but also reportedly said he would fly his son to California.

Earlier this year, Pangelinan was arrested and charged with murdering his co-worker, Leebrick Manglona. The pair got into a fight after a Mes Chamoru celebration at AK Toyota.

The fight - which was caught on surveillance footage - ended with Manglona on the pavement, beaten to death. Defense assured the court Pangelinan wouldn't make a run for it.

The court has taken the motion under advisement.  Bail is still set for $100,000.
