The ex-boyfriend of a Maui woman, who was five-months pregnant when she disappeared in February, is scheduled to appear for an arraignment Tuesday on charges of killing her and torching her car in an attempt to cover up the crime.

Maui prosecutors confirm 24-year-old Steven Capobianco was served with an arrest warrant at the Maui Community Correctional Center, where he has been in custody since June when he was picked up by Maui police on suspicion of allegedly threatening a member of Scott's family.

A Maui grand jury indicted Capobianco on a second-degree murder charge in the death of Carly "Charli" Scott on Friday, July 11. He was also indicted on arson charges for allegedly setting fire to Scott's property.

27-year-old Charli Scott was five-months pregnant with Steven Capobianco's son when she went missing. Capobianco was the last person to see Scott on February 9, 2014 and has been a top person of interest for Maui P.D., but officials say it took months of perseverance to build their case.

Capobianco is scheduled to appear before Circuit Court Judge Joseph Cardoza at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
