HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man accused of stabbing his neighbor to death at a YMCA has been re-indicted for murder in the second degree.

In August of last year, Robert Midel allegedly confronted Ryan Cavalear in the hallway at the Pali YMCA.

Police said Midel stabbed the 35-year-old several times in the head and neck. Cavalear was taken in critical condition to a hospital, where he later died.

In September, a judge agreed that the prosecution’s delays were excessive and dismissed the original case against Midel.

Prosecutor’s Office said because the murder charge was dismissed without prejudice, new charges could be filed.

On Tuesday, a Grand Jury indicted Midel, and a warrant was issued at that time.

His bail will be set at $500,000.
