Second man indicted for murder in attack on 90-year-old woman

WAILUKU — A second man has been indicted on a charge of murder in the death of a 90-year-old woman who was assaulted during a burglary of a Harbor Lights Condominium unit in Kahului.

Lewellyn Foster Jr., 35, of Kahului pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary when he was arraigned Oct. 17 in 2nd Circuit Court. He is being held without bail at the Maui Community Correctional Center.

Foster was among three people arrested in the burglary that occurred the night of June 20.

A police investigation showed Jacqueline Oberheim woke up while her room was being burglarized and started screaming before Foster jumped on top of the woman and assaulted her. She was transported to the hospital and later died, according to police.

A Dec. 2 pretrial conference was set for Foster when he appeared in court Friday. Attorney David Wiltsie was appointed to represent Foster.

Co-defendant Aaron Wilsey, 26, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and first-degree burglary. He is also charged with second-degree robbery, second-degree theft and first-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle earlier June 20 in Lahaina.

Wilsey is being held without bail at the Maui Community Correctional Center.

Foster’s girlfriend, Chery Moniz, 29, of Kahului, also is charged with first-degree burglary in the case.
