Jury deliberating in trial over Maui woman’s 2014 slaying

  • WENDY OSHER / JUNE 2016

    Steven Capobianco is on trial for the murder of Carly “Charli” Scott.

WAILUKU >> A jury is deliberating the fate of a Maui man on trial for murder in the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend.

The Maui News reports that jury deliberations began Thursday in the case of Steven Capobianco, who is accused of killing Carly “Charli” Scott in 2014.

The charge of second-degree murder carries a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole but prosecutors say they are seeking an extended sentence that does not include parole.

Prosecutors argue that Capobianco had been with Scott the night of Feb. 9, 2014, in a remote area in east Maui, where parts of her body and blood-stained clothing were discovered days later.

Defense attorneys have said Capobianco was uncooperative with authorities because of a marijuana deal, not the murder.
