Teen charged with beating homeless man to death

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) Honolulu police say a 16-year-old boy has been charged with beating a homeless man to death.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Tuesday that a petition has been filed to lessen charges from murder to manslaughter.

Police say the victim was 62-year-old Anthony Montero, who described himself as a freelance journalist. He also ran unsuccessfully for several political offices under the name Paul A. Manner.

Police arrested the teen Monday but have declined to release his name because he is a minor.

Authorities say Montero was beaten by a group of teens east of downtown Honolulu last week, where he was sleeping.

Police spokeswoman Teresa Bell says they are not seeking other suspects.
