According to the Associated Press, Angel Capili Jr. turned himself in to the chief of his village in General Trias township south of Manila, said Gilbert Cruz, police chief of nearby Laguna province.
Police said Charice's 40-year-old father, Ricky Pempengco, went to a local store on Monday to buy cigarettes. He was reportedly stabbed to death with an ice pick by a drunken man.
Capili admits that what he did was "wrong," adding, "I am seeking forgiveness from the family left behind by Mr. Pempengco. ... I am prepared to suffer whatever is the judgment."
However, Charice doesn't think Capili is sorry for what he did, and she is not ready to forgive. "He should not defend himself," the 19-year-old 'Glee' star told reporters on Thursday. "He cannot bring back my dad."
The singer canceled her concert in Singapore to attend the wake of her father in Manila on November 2. She says she still loves her father, despite the fact that he left her family when she was 3 years old.
"I loved him and I will still love him," she tweeted. "He's still my Dad after all."
