The choose in Hawaii finds a probable purpose to cost Pittsburgh’s vacationers with the dying of a pal
HONOLULU (AP) – A judge in Hawaii rules there is likely a reason to charge a Pittsburgh tourist with manslaughter in the strangulation of the college buddy he vacationed with.
Benjamin Fleming was arrested last month after his first night on the Big Island with his two college friends ended in a deadly fight.

Alexander Germany-Wald of Montclair, New Jersey, testified at a preliminary hearing for Fleming that her friend Abhishek Gupta, also from Pittsburgh, was “psychotically” drunk.
Germany-Wald says there was a fist fight until Fleming held Gupta back. They later found out that he was not breathing.
A judge denied a motion to release Fleming or reduce his bail by $ 250,000.
