Police in the US have arrested the husband of a Filipina who has been missing for more than two years in the United States.
Dane Kallungi, 38, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder of Jepsy Amaga Kallungi, 26, who has been missing since April 2019. Amaga used to live in Colorado Springs.
Dane tried to get into an Air Force base in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he was arrested. He was later taken into custody in New Mexico for the alleged murder of Jepsy.
It was in March 20, 2019 that Dane was suspected to have committed his crime, which was the last day Jepsy’s mother, Margie Amaga, heard from her daughter.
Amaga, based in Hong Kong, has been pleading for her daughter’s whereabouts.
“I just want to know if she’s still alive or dead,” Margie said. “I don’t know where she is, why she’s gone.”
Colorado Springs police opened the probe on Dane after they were not able to find Jepsy. Meanwhile, Dane said Jepsy went back to the Philippines to visit her friends.
The couple met in 2017 through an online dating app and Jepsy moved to the US to marry Dane in July of the same year. SOVEREIGNPH
