Aaron Wilsey.

Twenty-six-year-old Aaron Wilsey pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to a new charge of second degree murder after being indicted by a Maui Grand Jury on Aug. 9, 2019.

The charge stems from a June 20, 2019 burglary at the Harbor Lights condominium complex in Kahului, in which police say a 90-year-old female resident was assaulted and later died of her injures.

The five count indictment names Wilsey as a “principal and/or an accomplice,” in the incident for “intentionally or knowingly” causing the death of Jacqueline Oberheim. It also alleges that Wilsey failed to obtain or attempt to obtain aid from law enforcement or medical personnel.

Other counts against Wilsey include: first degree burglary, second degree robbery, second degree theft and first degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

A bail hearing has been set for 9 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22; and a pretrial conference is scheduled for Oct. 7 at 8:30 a.m.


Two others were also arrested in connection with the incident.  Lewellyn Foster Jr. was charged with first degree robbery, first degree burglary and first degree assault.  Chery Moniz was charged with first degree burglary.  Both pleaded not guilty to their respective charges on July 3.


Pretrial conferences for Foster and Moniz have been set for Aug. 26 at 1 p.m., and jury trials for both are set for Sept. 9 at 8:30 a.m.
