Even though she doesn't want to confirm the issue, Deniece Cornejo, one of the five accused in the serious illegal detention case filed by actor-TV host Vhong Navarro in relation with the mauling incident that happened in a condominium unit last Jan. 22, is experiencing difficulty in breathing because of asthma. In an interview with TV5 aired this morning, May 8, 2014, Deniece revealed that she is adjusted to life behind bars despite the fact that she has asthma.

The TV and print ad model is wishing to be permanently detained at the Anti-Transnational Crime Unit (ATCU) of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) at Camp Crame in Quezon City. Unfortunately, Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez of the Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 271 is still weighing her motion, based on the report, she will stay in the custody of the CIDG until May 11.

This means, Judge Cortez will release an order regarding her motion next week, and if she is lucky, she will get favorable decision, but if not, she will be transferred to the Taguig City Jail immediately. Aside from the non-bailable serious illegal detention case filed by Vhong Navarro, Deniece is also facing the grave coercion case at the Taguig Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 74, based on the latest and updated report, the model entered a not guilty plea.

Reports said that aside from Deniece, Vhong Navarro and his girlfriend named Tanya were also present during the arraignment. On a possible state witness of the case, the granddaughter of Rod Cornejo, former executive of GMA-7, rival TV network of ABS-CBN, said she is not interested to turn the tables against Cedric Lee, Zimmer Raz and six others involved in the incident. Deniece is still claiming that she is innocent despite the dismissal of her rape complaint against Vhong Navarro.
