Filipino police charge woman with murder

  • Print

FREDERICTON -- Police in the Philippines have charged a New Brunswick man's wife with murder after the 62-year-old was shot dead in the Southeast Asian country last month.

Martin Gamba, a spokesman for the police force, says Jane Doyle and three men in the Philippines have been charged with murder for the death of Harry Doyle of Fredericton at a beach resort in Surigao City on Aug. 12.

"We are going to request the Canadian government to have his wife extradited back to the Philippines," Gamba said Thursday.

However, he said prosecutors need to secure arrest warrants before they can make that request -- a process he said could take 30 to 45 days.

Gamba said investigators believe the wife and Doyle's driver hired two men to kill Doyle.

Jane Doyle could not be reached for comment. But in an interview in Thursday's Fredericton Daily Gleaner, Doyle said she feels she is being "dragged down" and wants to tell her side of the story in the presence of her lawyer.

Gamba said police in the Philippines are watching the three suspects in that country to make sure they don't leave.

Fredericton police Const. Danielle Carmichael said no one has contacted the department about an extradition request for Doyle.
