Man Accused of Restaurant Beating Indicted

WAIANAE (KHNL) -- A man accused of attacking a mentally-challenged elderly man at a fast-food restaurant in Waianae earlier this month is now charged with murder.

Wednesday, an Oahu grand jury indicted 53-year-old Gary Avilez on a second-degree murder charge.

Investigators say Avilez was in the restroom at the Waianae Burger King on April 7th when the victim, who was in there earlier, tried to get in to retrieve his fanny pack. The suspect is accused of beating 69-year-old Domingo Correa, who died from his injuries last week.
