(KHNL) - The second of two men accused of killing a shop owner 29 years ago makes his first court appearance in the case.
Forty-seven-year-old Aaron Meyer pleaded not guilty via video teleconference from the Oahu Community Correctional Center Thursday morning. Last week, an Oahu grand jury indicted him and 50-year-old Melvin Kumukau on murder charges.
Kumukau pleaded not guilty during his court appearance earlier this week. Bail is set at $1 million each.
The men are suspected in the shooting death of 58-year-old Toshio Kawano. Investigators say Kawano was working at his Moiliili Bakery on September 26th, 1977, when he was gunned down in what appeared to be a botched robbery.
