Article 247 Episode 26 Carmen is found guilty for parricide and faces reclusiõn perpetua as penalty, Sarah puts a bounty of 10million pesos on Klaire’s head after she evades justice
In the court room, Carmen said she was not guilty since she acted on the basis of article 247. She admitted to have k!lling Elijah when she saw him in bed with Jane.
The Attorney of the Ortegas, asked why she changed her statement since she had told the police earlier that Jane was the one who k!lled Elijah. She claimed she had said that out of fear, however, she k!lled Elijah due to what she saw the deceased and Jane doing in bed.
The next day of the trial, Jane went to the witness box to tell the court about the truth of the entire situation that transpired and said Carmen forced her to have sëx with Elijah but she did not. The attorney of Jane brought a medical examination that showed that Jane never had sëx and Carmen was found guilty of k!lling Elijah.
She suffered a penalty of reclusiõn perpetua and she was upset with the court’s decision.
The protestors who were camped outside the court were happy that Carmen was found guilty as they saw Article 247 as a law that had to be scrapped out since all murder is murder. As the police were ushering her into the car, she warned Jane and the Borromeos that they knew her but they did not know what she was capable of doing.
Suddenly, there was an explosion which Julian perpetrated and when the police, Borromeos and the Ortegas realised Carmen was no where to be found. She was later seen in a house with Julian. It turned out that Julian fled with her. However, they did not have enough money so she thought of means for her to obtain the money she saved at La Bellega.
Jane who preempted that told Noah that Klaire would run out of money so they went to monitor her at La Bellega. Klaire and Julian went there for the money so Jane and Noah followed her to their hideout secretly. They tried to stop Julian and Carmen from running away after they were caught.
As Noah fought Julian, Jane also fought Klaire and the latter broke a bottle to threaten Jane. Jane tried to appeal to Klaire’s emotions by telling her that she knew Klaire was equally a victim of her traumatic past when her father caught his wife with another man and k!lled his wife using Article 247 to cover up his deeds.
