Calif. man faces murder charge in Hawaii

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A Southern California man is facing extradition to Hawaii in the killing of a man whose dismembered body was found in a ravine.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force helped arrest Bryan Suitt Monday at his family's home on Coronado Island in San Diego.

The marshals office says there will be a hearing in California to return him to Hawaii to face the murder charge.

A couple collecting cans and bottles for recycling found the dismembered and decomposing body of Alexis Gonzales in September in a central Oahu ravine.

Suitt was booked at the San Diego County Jail and is being held on $5 million bail. Relatives didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Police have not revealed a motive for the killing.
