Whyne, who has no permanent address, was charged Thursday with second-degree murder and five firearms offenses in connection with the Dec. 29 death of 32-year-old Faatetai Fiu near Mo`oheau Park.

Police responding to reports of multiple gunshots found Fiu’s body along the Bayfront Highway. According to police, an autopsy showed that Fiu bled to death as a result of gunshot wounds.
