Former (Ex) PBA Best Import Jamelle Cornley lands in jail again - October 25, 2013

Former PBA import Jamelle Cornley is back in hot water, landing in jail on Wednesday after being accused of trying to kill his Filipina girlfriend.

According to Inspector Edith Castro, head of the Women and Children Protection Desk of the Quezon City Police District, Cornley is currently detained at Camp Karingal while facing frustrated homicide charges.

Cornley, a winner of the PBA’s Best Import award last season while playing for Rain or Shine, was arrested by police at around 4 p.m. inside Athens Capital Tower condominium.

Castro said the policemen rescued his girlfriend, Ma. Cheryl Torralba, a 25-year-old student, during the arrest.

Henna Pantila, 18, a housemaid who witnessed the alleged crime, was also given protection by the police.

Cornley was also arrested last March for allegedly assaulting a policeman who tried to pacify him at a Quezon City hotel. He is facing charges of alarm and scandal and physical injuries stemming from that incident.

Initial investigation by the police said that Cornley slapped Torralba four times before dragging her to the comfort room.

“There and then hit her head with the shower head while telling her he was going to kill her. While suspect was holding her, she was being directed to call her parents over the cell phone to tell them the following words to quote as ‘I’m going to kill you.’ But she didn’t follow,” Castro said.

Cornley then dragged her again to the terrace of the 15th floor condominium unit and tried to push her to the ground, but she was able to hold tight on the iron grills.

He proceeded to the living room, where he began to destroy objects.

“When she saw her LED flat screen TV about to be thrown out, she pleaded and requested to Cornley to just leave her alone but he ignores it as he wanted to find the victim’s cell phone, which she refused to give,” Castro said. “This time suspect get a kitchen knife and pointed it to her neck. For fear of life, she instructed her maid Henna Pantila to seek for help that resulted to the apprehension of suspect.”
