AP NewsBreak: Missing pregnant woman's ex indicted

By

HONOLULU (AP) — The ex-boyfriend of a missing pregnant Maui woman has been indicted on a murder charge in the case.

A Maui grand jury indicted Steven Capobianco on a second-degree murder charge in the death of Carly Scott. She disappeared in February and was never found.

A person familiar with the investigation says Capobianco will be served with an arrest warrant Monday at the Maui Community Correctional Center. The person wasn't authorized to talk publicly about the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Capobianco has been jailed on $500,000 bail since last month in an unrelated case.

Family members last saw the 27-year-old Scott at her sister's Haiku home. Her torched sport-utility vehicle later was found on Maui's north shore.

Scott was five months pregnant with Capobianco's child when she vanished.

Capobianco told reporters at the time that he had nothing to do with her disappearance.
