The suspect in a Kailua murder investigation is now in a cellblock in Honolulu.

Police say Robert Roediger-Geauque was arrested and processed Friday afternoon after being extradited from California.

The 31-year-old is accused of stabbing a man multiple times on January 13. The victim was discovered at 333 Uluniu St. and taken to the hospital where he died.

Earlier this month, Santa Barbara police received tips that Roediger-Geauque was in its jurisdiction and contacted Honolulu police. An arrest warrant was obtained and officers arrested him for second-degree murder.

Roediger-Geauque will make his initial appearance in court Monday. His bail is set at $5 million.
