The four men who were released last week pending further investigation of the robbery and murder of a Kaneohe liquor store owner were re-arrested today.
The four were indicted on robbery charges by the Oahu grand jury yesterday.
Police re-arrested Gabriel Apilando, 30, Sheldon W. Barques, 31, and brothers James K. Hoapili, 28, and Albert R. Hoapili Jr., 33.
Apilando was charged with first-degree robbery and had his bail set at $50,000. Barques was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree criminal property damage, and first-degree hindering prosecution and had his bail set at $60,000.
James Hoapili was charged with first-degree robbery and had his bail set at $50,000. Albert Hoapili was charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree hindering prosecution and had his bail set at $55,000.
Earlier, the man who police accuse of being the gunman, Eric K. Vance, 31, was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery, auto theft, and two firearm violations. He was arrested last week and remains in custody on $250,000 bail.
Store owner Song Chol Marshall, 45, was fatally shot in the head on Christmas Eve in what police are calling a botched robbery in the parking lot of Angies Market on Kaneohe Bay Drive.
The robbers dumped Marshalls body in a Waimanalo trash bin and then torched his van in Mapunapuna, police said.
