HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A man being investigated in a murder was arrested Wednesday on new charges, according to Honolulu police.

Jhun Ley Irorita, 25, was arrested on a warrant for probation revocation and for violating a protective order, according to police records.

Irorita was initially taken into custody Jan. 11 on suspicion of second-degree murder and resisting arrest. He was wanted by police in connection with the murder of Helen Prestosa, 39, who was last seen on Nov. 19, 2015 in the Kalihi area.

Irorita was released pending investigation a couple days later apparently because police did not have enough evidence to charge him.
