2 arrested in killing of artist from Encinitas

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) — Two men are being held in connection to the death of a Maui artist.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that a 24-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were arrested in the death of 39-year-old artist Michael Colby.

Colby's body was discovered March 1 in the area of Kaa Point, just west of Kanaha Beach.

The man has been charged with second-degree murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. The teen was arrested Friday by Maui police and has been turned over to the Sheriff's Department.

The painter moved from Encinitas, California, five years ago and often worked outdoors or at Kanaha Beach.
