HONOLULU (AP) - A trial has been set for a Kauai man facing charges stemming from a Dec. 17 shooting that left one man dead.
Vicente "Vinnie" Hilario of Anahola was arraigned Tuesday on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, retaliating against a witness, intimidating a witness and bribery of a witness.
The 24-year-old Hilario pleaded not guilty. His trial is set to begin April 25.
The shooting near Anahola Beach Park left 34-year-old Aureo Arick Moore dead, and prompted the murder counts and the charges of retaliating and intimidating a witness.
Prosecutors say the witness bribery charge is related to Hilario's alleged interactions with Angienora Crawford, who allegedly drove Moore to the crime scene.
