CEBU CITY - The boyfriend of a teen who died of drug overdose during Sinulog festivities last month was charged with homicide on Saturday.

The case was filed by the father of 19-year-old medical student Ashley Abad and the Cebu City Police at the Cebu City Prosecutors Office.

In a statement, the family expressed their faith on the justice system that Nel Spencer Tiu and six others will be made accountable for Ashley's death.

“We will bravely stay and fight,and guard the legal process ferociously,even with our lives, until justice is truly served," they said.

Ashley collapsed at a pre-Sinulog party and died the next day due to ecstasy overdose.
