Trial in death of Maui pregnant woman to begin in 2016
WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A trial date has been set for a man charged with murder in the disappearance of a pregnant Maui woman in 2014.
The Maui News reports that 26-year-old Steven Capobianco will face trial Jan. 19 in the death of Carly "Charli" Scott. He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and third-degree arson of the women's vehicle.
Scott had been reported missing Feb. 10, 2014. Family members had said that the 27-year-old woman, who was five months pregnant, had left the house to help Capobianco, whose car had broken down in Keanae.
Police began investigating the case as a homicide after they found her torched car and more of her belongings during a search.
Capobianco was indicted on the charges in July 2014.
