A state judge ordered a 48-year-old man Wednesday to stand trial for murder in the stabbing death of another man last Friday in Kailua.

Brian Kim is charged with second-degree murder.

A witness told police he saw Kim lunge at the victim and appeared to be punching him at Kailua District Park.

Police say Kim was using a knife and stabbed the victim.  The medical examiner identified the victim Wednesday as 58-year-old Robert Coleman Jr. of Kailua.

Bail for Kim is set at $250,000.
