Cofino and Pronielyn have one child already and they were supposed to get married during the soldier’s next vacation.
The Marine had also promised to Pronielyn that he would financially support her studies until her graduation in Octover.
"Galit ako sa mga Maute, pinatay nila 'yung asawa ko. Nawala mga pangarap namin, marami kasi siyang plano," a grieving Pronielyn told ABS-CBN News.
