Missing pregnant woman's ex indicted
HONOLULU — The ex-boyfriend of a Maui woman who was five months pregnant when she disappeared in February has been indicted on charges of killing her and torching her SUV to cover up the crime.
Steven Capobianco of Maui is expected to be served with an arrest warrant at Maui Community Correctional Center, where he has been held since last month in an unrelated case, said a person familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The person wasn't authorized to talk publicly about the case.
A Maui grand jury on Friday indicted Capobianco on a second-degree murder charge in the death of 27-year-old Carly Scott, who has not been found.
Capobianco is the father of Scott's unborn child and has adamantly denied hurting her.
Family members last saw Scott in February at her sister's Haiku home.
Scott's burned 1997 Toyota 4Runner was later found on the island's north shore.
