HONOLULU — Honolulu police arrested a man in connection with the death of a woman found dead near Kaena Point this weekend.
Officials said they believe this case was a domestic battle involving two Schofield Barracks soldiers.
Military police discovered the body of Felicia La Duke, 22, Saturday afternoon. Honolulu police detectives were later called to the scene. La Duke had been beaten, strangled and run over by a car, sources said.
La Duke had been in a custody battle over her child with her ex-boyfriend, according to official reports.
Military police initially arrested Jeffery White, 21, also stationed at Schofield Barracks. Honolulu police then took him into custody.
Police said White is now married to another woman. No charges have been filed yet.
