LIHUE, Hawaii -

A Kauai judge has set an April trial date for the man charged with murder in the shooting death of an 88-year-old man.

Giovanni Corpuz is scheduled to go on trial Apr. 21.

He was held without bail in connection with the death of Amby Cruz who was found shot in the head at his home on New Year's Day.

Corpuz was arrested in Taiwan while on his way to the Philippines.

The Garden Island newspaper reports family and friends of Cruz attended Corpuz's arraignment Monday which was postponed from last week. Corpuz was in need of an Ilocano interpreter.

If convicted, Corpuz faces extended sentencing for inflicting serious injuries to a person 60 years old or older.
