After he stabbed his wife multiple times in front of their 10-year-old daughter, Pablo Fiesta, Jr. then hit his wife in the head with a bottle of vinegar, Deputy Prosecutor Tiffany Kaeo told a state judge Tuesday.
Kaeo shared those details in court after an Oahu grand jury returned an indictment charging Fiesta, 46, with murder for fatally stabbing his wife Cecilia.
Circuit Judge Richard Perkins confirmed Fiesta’s bail at $500,000.
Kaeo told Perkins that Fiesta is not a U.S. citizen and poses a risk of flight.
Fiesta remains in custody at Oahu Community Correctional Center.
Police found Cecilia Fiesta, 43, unresponsive in the couple’s Aliamanu home Aug. 17.
The Honolulu Medical Examiner says she died from multiple stab wounds to her torso.
