Suspect indicted in Kalihi teen’s murder

Adrian Bringas

A suspect accused of murdering a 16-year-old in Kalihi has been indicted by a grand jury.

Adrian Bringas, 27, was indicted Tuesday on charges of second-degree murder and second-degree assault.

Court documents allege that on the night of Tuesday, April 12, Bringas approached a group on Ahonui Street and tried to sell them drugs.

Police say an argument began between Bringas, the murder victim, Wesley Ulugalu-Sula, and his 18-year-old brother, which moved to the middle of the street. That’s when, court documents say, Bringas pulled a sharp object out of his backpack and stabbed Ulugalu-Sula once in the upper chest. He later died at the hospital.

Court documents say Bringas then fought Ulugalu-Sula’s brother and stabbed him in the upper leg.

His bail remains at $500,000 and he is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Monday.
