LAST UPDATED: 01:33 a.m. HST, Jan 18, 2014

A 71-year-old Waipahu man, who was arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a 42-year-old man on Sunday, was released from Honolulu Police Department custody at about 5 p.m. Friday, pending further investigation, police said.

Police said the victim, Marlo G. Basuel, got into an argument with two men at a party. One man stabbed Basuel several times and fled.

Paramedics took Basuel from a Kahuanani Street home at 9:48 p.m. Sunday to a hospital in "extremely critical condition." He died at the hospital three hours later.

The 71-year-old man was initially arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of second-degree murder. He was found at his Kahualoa Place home, several blocks north of the Waipahu crime scene.

No one else has been arrested.

This is what I love about Hawaii. Killers, rapists, child predators, etc. are all released pending investigation, which usually takes up to 2 years, before being charged and brought to trial.
