Trio indicted for attempted murder in Kalihi beating case
An Oçahu grand jury on Tuesday indicted two Schofield Barracks soldiers and a Liliha woman with plotting to kill a 25-year-old man and then dispose of his body.
Ramon A. Alcantara, 25, Ray N. Puga, 20, and Hazel K.R. Davis, 18, each were indicted on one count of second-degree attempted murder in connection with the case. Bail for each was set at $1 million.
Tuesday’s indictments supercede earlier charges against the trio.
Alcantara and Puga were identified in a police affidavit as enlisted men stationed at Schofield Barracks. Davis gave a North Kuakini Street address as her residence.
The three are accused of beating Jose Abrante with a hammer and stabbing him with a knife on the night of Jan. 24 near Lanakila Elementary School in Kalihi. Abrante was critically injured, but he was able to identify his assailants to police, according to the affidavit.
