Kauai police have arrested two men in connection with the murder of a 34-year-old Kekaka man.

Koma Texeira, 20, and Clayton Kona, 38, both of Waimea, are being held in lieu of $500,000 bail and are expected ot be charged later this week.

Last Tuesday, 34-year-old Jon Togioka was found dead on the shoreline near Port Allen Airport. He had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

The Kekaha man had recently gotten out of jail and family members said he was changing his life for the better.

“We get mixed emotions, we get mad, we get angry, you know,” said the victim’s father, Nelson Togioka.

A fundraiser has been set up for Togioka's children.
