Maui couple charged with murder in death of 4-year-old boy

By Star-Advertiser staff


Maui County authorities have charged a 32-year-old Wailuku man and his 27-year-old live-in girlfriend with second-degree murder after the man’s 4-year-old son died of blunt-force trauma injuries, police said today.

Kyle McKeown and Grace Lee-Nakamoto remained in custody today on bail of $500,000 each.

Police said McKeown took his son to the emergency room of Maui Memorial Medical Center at 10:57 p.m. Tuesday after the boy was found unresponsive in the shower of their home, police said. The boy died at 4:33 a.m.

An examination by emergency room doctors showed the child had sustained severe blunt-force trauma to his internal organs and subsequently died, police said.

The McKeown and Lee-Nakamoto told officers they did not know how the boy was hurt, police said.

Poor little one. Rest safely in peace. As for these 2 Winners of Maui's FUGLIEST Couple contest, it's going to be fun watching them turn on each other in order to spare themselves (hopefully) Decades in the Big House. That is, if Hawai'i's LOLO judicial system can somehow find the will to mete out punishment that actually fits this heinous crime.

beat the kid up and then take him to the hospital AFTER HE IS UNRESPONSIVE! some one in prison should beat you 2 up and see what it feels like to wait till you are in so much pain that you die before some one finds you in your jail cell. You 2 irresponsible low lifes took a 4, a four, a 48 month old child and god only knows what you did to him, and then you let him cry and beg and die before you do anything. You are 2 of the most EVIL people on the plane. hope you get what you back 100%

and the worst thing is that all the cowards who heard this child screaming or being mauled and dont tell me there was no commotion while these beatings were being carried out. All you damm cowards could have at least intervened or call 911 or something. "all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to sit and do nothing."
