The suspects’ statements could lead ‘any defence counsel to file a motion arguing that the client was insane at the time and a motion arguing whether or not the client was competent,’ law professor at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law, Ken Lawson, told KHON2.
Honolulu Police Deputy Chief John McCarthy said Boinville’s body was discovered by renters that night when they returned to the holiday home.
Makana identified Brown and Dandurand in social media photos after describing the pictured green-haired male and female suspect who she said were ‘covered in blood and took her into the house, and tied her up’ during the incident.

The couple were tracked down by police in Mililani late Thursday after they sped off in their victim’s truck. A crowd of locals gathered as the killer pair were being hauled into police cruisers and driven away. The onlookers shouted angrily at the suspects.
Authorities said Hailey Dandurand, a college student was arrested for car theft, while the unemployed Brown was taken into custody for a warrant and criminal property damage, after he kicked out the window of a police vehicle at the time.
Kevin Emery, the victim’s husband, confirmed to the Hawaii News Now he was banned from entering the home because the bloody scene was so horrific.

A potential motive for the bloody murder remains unclear.
Court documents obtained by KITV show Brown was also arrested in June after his ex-girlfriend alleged he was abusive. The unnamed woman claimed he repeatedly punched her in the face and tried to choke her.
The Department of Public Safety told the network that Brown posted bail in July while awaiting trial.
‘The last time I talk to him, he told me that he didn’t have a job and he was very suicidal and that he was planning to do death by cop,’ the woman told the news station.
‘Something stupid like pretending you have a gun so the cop will shoot you, so I think this is his plan so he gets beaten to death in prison.’
