Suspect in assault commits suicide

A martial arts instructor accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl killed himself Monday, officials said.

The medical examiner's office said Edward Tiffany, 62, of Nanakuli died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Tiffany was charged Friday with two counts of first-degree sex assault and four counts of third-degree sex assault, which police said occurred between Dec. 11, 2002 and Jan. 22.

Tiffany was released Friday after posting $40,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow at District Court.
