Kauai judge reduces bail for accused killer

By Associated Press


LIHUE >> A judge has reduced a $1 million bond for a Kauai man charged with murdering his estranged wife in 2006.

The Garden Island newspaper reported that Judge Kathleen Watanabe set bail for 40-year-old Darren Galas at $300,000 on Tuesday. Galas’ trial is set for April 1.

The Kalaheo man is accused of killing 27-year-old Sandra Galas. The two were in the midst of divorcing and reportedly embroiled in a custody battle over their two young children at the time.

Darren Galas has since remarried and the children have remained in his legal custody. He was charged in late October with second-degree murder.
