HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man accused of stabbing another man to death during an argument in Waipahu Sunday is scheduled to go before an Oahu judge Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Peter David, 29, was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree assault, and contempt. He remains at HPD's main cellblock, unable to post $100,000 bail.

Investigators say the suspect and the victim, Santhony Albert, 27, had been drinking when they got into an argument. David allegedly stabbed Albert in the chest.

An autopsy found that the victim bled to death from injuries to his heart and lung.
