Missing Filipina’s ex-husband gets life in prison with no parole for murder
A man in Colorado Springs, Colorado was and sentenced to life in prison Feb. 21 after being found guilty of first-degree murder in the disappearance of his Filipina wife in 2019.
After a quick deliberation Tuesday, a jury found Dane Kallungi guilty of first-degree murder of his wife, Jepsy Amaga Kallungi, who is still missing.
Dane Kallungi was also found guilty of tampering with a human body. He was immediately sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Jepsy went missing in March 2019, and neither she nor her body has been found.
Jepsy’s mother, Margie Amaga, told KKTV 11 News she last spoke to her her daughter on March 20, 2019.
Jepsy and Dane met on an internet dating site before she moved to Colorado from the Philippines to marry him. They were divorced in January 2019.
Colorado Springs Police Department began investigating Jepsy’s disappearance on April 4, 2019.
Prosecutors played a video recording from Kallungi’s interrogation, in which he could be heard saying that he “did not mean to kill her.”
