A 42-year-old Kahaluu man, who pleaded no contest in the 2018 stabbing death of his tenant whose body was found in a shipping container on his property, was released from custody last week.
In exchange for his Oct. 3 plea of no contest to manslaughter, Samuel Campiformio agreed to accept a 20-year prison term at sentencing in the death of Kenneth Ratzlaff. He was originally charged with second-degree murder.
Instead Circuit Judge Fa`auuga To`oto`o sentenced him on Dec. 4 to 10 years’ probation and imprisonment of 398 days, but was credited the 398 days for time served.
He was also ordered to pay $2,077.44 in restitution to Ratzlaff’s father, Michael.
Campiformio was released from custody Dec. 4.
