Honolulu police last night arrested four Kaneohe men and were looking for a fifth man in connection with the murder of a 45-year-old Kaneohe liquor store owner who was found in a Waimanalo trash bin on Christmas Day.

Officers arrested the men late last night on suspicion of murder and robbery, police said.

Homicide Lt. Bill Kato is expected to release information to the media on the fifth suspect today, police said.

Storeowner Song Chol Marshall’s van was found engulfed in flames in the Mapunapuna area at about 3:50 a.m. on Christmas Day, police said.

Some 11 hours later, Marshall's body was found face down in the trash bin by the owner of Keneke’s Plate Lunch & BBQ, 41-857 Kalanianaole Highway in Waimanalo. The medical examiner said Marshall died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Shortly after the murder, police conducted a roadblock in the Kaneohe Bay Drive area to find out information from motorists.
