Bail reduced for woman charged in Maui boy’s death

By Associated Press


WAILUKU >> The girlfriend charged along with her boyfriend with murder in the Maui death of his 4-year-old son has been granted a reduced bail amount.

The Maui News reports a judge reduced Grace Lee-Nakamoto’s bail from $1 million to $750,000.

Lee-Nakamoto and Kyle McKeown are charged with second-degree murder of Zion McKeown. Zion died May 30 after the couple brought the unresponsive boy to an emergency room.

Prosecutors say Zion’s injuries are consistent with being stomped on or falling from a significant height.

Lee-Nakamoto couldn’t be reached Monday at Maui Community Correctional Center, where she remains in custody. McKeown’s bail remains at $1 million.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rivera says the couple wouldn’t let the boy’s mother speak to Zion via phone from Oahu the night he was injured.
