A frantic effort is now underway to save the life of jailed Filipina OFW Cecilia Alcaraz who is in a Taiwanese jail allegedly for killing Taiwanese national Chiu Mei-Yun in September 2007. She was originally sentenced to death by firing squad but the Taiwanese appeals court has recently commuted it to life imprisonment after considering her appeal.
