Suspect's bail $1M, for now

WAILUKU » A bail hearing is set for Tuesday for a Maui man charged with second-degree murder.

Circuit Judge Shackley Raffetto said Thursday that until then, bail for suspect Robert Chiarizia will remain at $1 million.

Chiarizia eluded police for nine months before being captured Monday at a campsite in heavy brush. Police say he had been living in a shelter made of branches and leaves.
