Soldier charged in beating death
Police charged Anthony T. Biscoe, 22, a Schofield soldier, with second-degree murder yesterday in the bludgeoning of a transvestite with a brick Aug. 14.
He was held on $100,000 bail.
Biscoe, of 1546B McGaha Lane, was stopped by police two hours before the beating for a traffic violation. He was driving a red car similar to one witnesses said fled the Wahiawa parking lot where the beating occurred.
Thomas Hall, 33, died in Queen’s Hospital a week ago of head injuries due to blunt trauma, according to an autopsy.
