A man in Hawaii who was taken into custody on a murder charge after police found a body in a park is now charged in connection to the stabbings of multiple other people, police said.
Shortly before 6 a.m. on June 7, police in Kona responded to the report of the body in Hale Halawai County Park, KITV reported.
An autopsy later determined the victim, Boyd Maygra, 48, died from multiple stab wounds.
Detectives identified Chito Asuncion, 24, as a suspect in the man’s death and arrested him for second-degree murder.
While in custody, Asuncion was charged with multiple other crimes, including the homicide of another man last month.
According to police, on May 17, the suspect allegedly stabbed to death of 63-year-old Brian Macaulay in Kailua-Kona.
On May 25, police claim, Asuncion allegedly also stabbed a 59-year-old man in Hilo as well as a 70-year-old woman five days later.
Both survived their injuries.
In addition to the original murder charge, Asuncion now faces additional charges that include a second count of murder, and two counts of attempted murder.
He was being held on $1.5 million bail.
