WAILUKU >> A 19-year-old Kihei man has been indicted in the beating death of a homeless man.

The Maui News reports Kekaimalu Cacpal was arrested Wednesday.

He’s the second person charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of 44-year-old Michael Phillip Gray at a Kalama Park in Kihei.

Gray was found unconscious March 15 at a park pavilion. He died April 11.
