Maui barricade suspect in court

MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man who barricaded himself in a Kahului home for more than 50 hours last week was arraigned Monday in Maui Circuit Court.

Okudara entered "not guilty" pleas for attempted murder and also promoting a dangerous drug. The charges stem from two incidents last summer.

Prosecutors on Monday argued successfully to have Okudara's bail increased in light of last week's standoff.

A judge today changed Okudara's case to a "no bail" status. He's due back in court later this week.
