HONOLULU (AP) - A 40-year-old soldier charged with killing his wife in their Waikiki condominium has been released from a hospital and taken into custody by Honolulu police.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Leonardo Chavez of the Dominican Republic was jailed Tuesday with bail set at $1 million.

He is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 33-year-old Tara Isnin, who was originally from Singapore. The Honolulu medical examiner says she died of gunshot wounds to the head.

Police say Chavez shot Isnin on Oct. 28 and then shot himself in the right cheek in an apparent suicide attempt.

An Oahu grand jury indicted Chavez on Nov. 19.

The 18-year Army veteran was stationed at Camp Smith and assigned to the Pacific Command's Special Operations Command.
