WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A man sentenced to life in prison for killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend was sentenced to a five years in prison for burglary, theft and contraband charges to resolve his remaining criminal cases.

Judge Peter Cahill followed a plea agreement in imposing the sentence Tuesday for Steven Capobianco of Maui.

Capobianco pleaded no contest to burglary, theft, two counts of attempted promotion of prison contraband and carrying a deadly weapon.

Capobianco was found guilty Dec. 28 of second-degree murder of his pregnant ex-girlfriend Carly Scott and second-degree arson of her vehicle.

At the time, Scott was five months pregnant with a Capobianco’s son, The Maui News reported (https://bit.ly/2wLycV0 ).

Capobianco was sentenced March 24 to life in prison with the possibility of parole for murder plus 10 years for arson.

Capobianco was charged Sept. 18, 2013, with burglarizing the residence of his ex-girlfriend Taylor Farner.

The deadly weapon charge stemmed from his arrest June 16, 2014, when he was found with a dual-edged knife disguised as a belt buckle, according to police.

He faced the prison contraband charges for a Feb. 19 incident in a visiting room at the Maui Community Correctional Center where police said his aunt, Susan Capobianco, tried to pass him methamphetamine, marijuana, marijuana concentrate and cigarettes. She also was charged and is awaiting sentencing.
