Frank Guzman indicted for aggravated murder for Harmon businessman's death

Posted: Updated:

An indictment is handed down against the man accused of killing a local businessman in Harmon. Frank Joseph Salas Guzman is indicted on multiple charges including aggravated murder.

Indicted twice on charges of aggravated murder as a 1st degree felony, twice for first degree robbery as a 1st degree felony, aggravated assault as a second and third degree felony, theft of a motor vehicle, second degree robbery and criminal trespass.

A Superior Court grand jury late Monday handed down the indictment against Frank Joseph Salas Guzman. Majority of the charges include a special allegation of use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony and vulnerable victim.

As we reported, Guzman told authorities he was high on the drug, ICE, when he jumped the fence into the LSP construction property and waited for the victim, 63-year-old Pyung Sik Lee, to show up.

That's when he is accused of confronting Lee, his former employer claiming that Lee owed him money. He allegedly hit Lee with a baseball bat multiple times before stabbing him with a knife.  Guzman is then accused of taking off with Lee's car, which he later ditched in Dededo.

Lee suffered from a gash to the top of his head and was stabbed near his rib cage and stomach.

A witness spotted Lee bleeding out from his head and calling for help. But, he didn't survive.

It's been three weeks since the deadly attack.

We should note, an autopsy has yet to be performed on Lee due to the lack of a medical examiner on island.

Guzman, who is being held on a $500,000 bail, is summoned to appear to answer to the charges in the indictment tomorrow afternoon.
