Justin Klein in Court

The Kauai man charged with attempted murder for allegedly pushing a Japanese tourist off a cliff appeared in court on Tuesday.

Justin Klein, 37, was arrested on Saturday at Lydgate Beach Park after being on the run for the past four months.

Police say back in December, Klein grabbed a 31-year-old Japanese visitor and threw her off the cliff.

She fell about 15 feet and suffered critical injuries, but survived.

Klein is being held on $1 million bail.
