HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Salt Lake man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the alleged beating death of another man on Tuesday.


41-year-old Dale Rodrigues, Jr., remains in police custody this morning on $1 million bail.

Police sources say Rodrigues went to the home of his on-again, off-again girlfriend on Salt Lake Boulevard early Tuesday morning, where he found the woman with a man who has been identified as 33-year old Jessie Waikiki.

The three argued, and that argument eventually spilled onto the street. Waikiki was allegedly beaten with the metal handle of a shopping cart and taken to the hospital in critical condition, where he later died.
