Retired Los Angeles police detective arrested in Hawaii in wife's 2006 death By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Authorities say a retired Los Angeles Police Department detective has been arrested in Hawaii in the death of his wife six years ago.

A Hawaii County prosecutor tells KHON that Dan DeJarnette pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder during his arraignment Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Times says DeJarnette was taken into custody Monday night at his home on the Big Island in connection with the slaying of his wife, Yu DeJarnette.

The former detective said at the time of his wife's 2006 death that he had awakened and found her lying on a lava embankment about 20 feet from the couple's home. She suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

DeJarnette was booked at the time for investigation of murder and later released because of lack of evidence.
