HONOLULU (AP) — A tourist from Pittsburgh has been charged with manslaughter after a deadly fight in a Hawaii vacation rental, police said.
A second tourist from Boston who had been arrested was released with no charges filed, police on the Big Island said Wednesday.
Police were called to a Kailua-Kona vacation rental early Monday where a 30-year-old man wasn't breathing.
A preliminary investigation found that an argument between the men turned physical, police said.
Benjamin Fleming, 37, of Pittsburgh and Alexander Germany-Wald, 31, of Boston were arrested. Fleming was later charged while Germany-Wald was released after police conferred with prosecutors.
Fleming was scheduled for a court hearing Wednesday. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
Germany-Wald couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
The identity of the victim was being withheld pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.
