Judge denies bail for defendant in Hawaii dismemberment case

Share/Save/Bookmark

HONOLULU — A judge in Hawaii has denied bail for a Southern California man accused of killing a man whose dismembered body was found in an Oahu ravine.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://is.gd/2DsWxx) says 46-year-old Bryan Suitt was ordered Thursday to remain in custody pending his trial, which was set to begin next month. His trial is now set for January.

Prosecutors wanted Suitt's bail to be increased or denied, saying he is a flight risk and comes from a wealthy family. His bail had been set at $5 million.

Authorities believe Suitt killed 34-year-old Alex Gonzales, whose dismembered remains were found last September on both sides of Mililani Memorial Park Road.

Suitt was arrested in December at his family's home on Coronado Island in San Diego. He unsuccessfully fought extradition to Hawaii.
