A woman who cleaned a summer house in Hawaii on Wednesday with her 8-year-old daughter was brutally murdered and the girl tied with duct tape, Hawaii police said as they announced two arrests in the case.
Officials said Saturday that Kailey Dandurand, 20, and Stephen Brown, 23, were charged with murder, kidnapping and robbery in Telma Boinville's death in the famous navigation mecca on the north coast of Oahu, according to reports.
Boinville was hit with a bat baseball, which was recovered at the scene, KHON-TV reported.
His 8-year-old daughter was found alive in another room, the station reported. She had been tied up and gagged with tape.
Police sources told the station that the Boinville credit card was found in Dandurand's pocket when she and Brown were arrested on Thursday night. They also had dried blood on their hands.
Boinville was a substitute elementary school teacher, reported Honolulu Star-Advertiser. She also worked as a house cleaner, which is why she was in the house where she was murdered.
She was helping a friend clean houses to supplement her income, the newspaper reported.
"This put her in the wrong place, at the wrong time," her husband Kevin Emery said, according to the newspaper.
Police arrested Dandurand and Brown at a Walmart, the newspaper reported.
An angry crowd watched and shouted obscenities while being detained, KGMB-TV reported.
On Friday, Dandurand and Brown laughed and smiled at the news cameras when they were taken to the headquarters of the Honolulu Police Department to be reserved.
Dandurand and Brown appeared before a judge on Saturday. He was ordered to keep her on bail of $ 500,000; A $ 1 million bond was ordered.
The station also reported that Dandurand frequently fled in Oregon, where he grew up.
KHON reported that Brown had an outstanding warrant for his arrest when he was arrested for not informing his probation officer in October for a drug test.
In June, police officers said he was arrested for beating his then girlfriend, the station reported.
The Star-Advertiser reported that the case of domestic violence was dismissed two months later.
A GoFundMe page was created on behalf of the daughter of Boinville and more than $ 54,000 was raised on Sunday morning.
