Warrant issued for S.L. man's arrest
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Police have arrested a sixth man in a 1998
fire bombing incident that also involved a former LDS missionary and
state football star. On Wednesday, May 3rd, prosecutors charged Maile
F. Kinikini, 26, of Salt Lake with participating in the firebombing.
They had earlier charged five others, including former East High
football star Sione Havili, 20, who returned from an LDS mission to
face the charges.
In the October 18, 1998 incident, the six men allegedly fired guns
and threw burning milk jugs of gasoline at a Salt Lake City home
because they thought the residents had committed a drive-by shooting
at the home of one of the group, Viliami Wolfgramm. The resulting
fire gutted the home.
Kinikini remains at large, but police have issued a $500,000 warrant
for his arrest. They claim that he had threatened to kill Wolfgramm
and Siale Vianuku, another of the men allegedly involved in the
incident, for telling the police about his involvement.
