6th man charged in bomb incident
Deseret News 8May00 D2
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.
