GOVERNOR IGE SIGNS FIRST DEGREE MURDER, PARENTAL RIGHTS MEASURES INTO LAW

News Release from Office of the Governor Jul 6, 2016

HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed a bill into law that broadens the offense of first degree murder. Previously, the offense has been narrowly defined and limited to rare cases in which there are multiple victims, the victim is killed by a hired killer or the victim was under the specific protection of the courts or law enforcement system.

With Gov. Ige’s signature, first degree murder now includes circumstances in which the defendant intentionally or knowingly causes the death of a person by restraining and using that person as a shield, holding that person hostage or for ransom or reward.

These are the bill signed into law by Gov. Ige on July 6, 2016.
