MANILA, Philippines–Fugitive model Deniece ‎Cornejo, one of the accused in the serious illegal detention and mauling of actor Vhong Navarro, surrendered to the Philippine National Police on Monday.

Cornejo was brought to the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) for booking.

Senior Superintendent Roberto Fajardo, CIDG-National Capital Region chief, said in a phone interview that Cornejo and her family had sent surrender feelers “two weeks ago.”

He said Cornejo was then fetched by CIDG-NCR personnel “somewhere in Metro Manila” earlier Monday.

Cornejo – along with businessman Cedric Lee, Simeon Palma and several others – is charged with serious illegal detention, a nonbailable offense in connection with the Jan. 22 mauling of Navarro at a rented condominium unit of Cornejo in Taguig City.
