Honolulu police have reclassified the case of a Waikiki woman fatally injured in a purse snatching in Waikiki from robbery to manslaughter.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office determined that Jullie Stephenson's death was a homicide, following an autopsy. The office said she died at 12:39 a.m. Wednesday of complications following injuries to the right lower extremity and a broken thighbone.

Stephenson, 52, broke her hip and suffered internal bleeding when an assailant shoved her down and took her purse in the driveway of her condo, the Tradewinds, on Ala Moana Boulevard near Hobron Lane at about 9:20 p.m. on Feb. 2.

Doctors at Straub Clinic & Hospital replaced her hip and put her in a coma to protect her organs from further damage, her family said.

Police are still looking for suspects.

Manslaughter is a class A felony, punishable by 20 years in prison.

Who ever was driving the get a way car had better turn themself in to the police and cut a deal for their testimony. Otherwise, the felony murder rules kick in and the driver will be charged for the killer's actions which resulted in the death of Mrs. Stephenson.

The print edition said the cops are going to start looking at video from cameras in the area. Why are they starting now? Shouldn't they have started getting that together the night of the crime?

This murdering of a kamaaina is totally unacceptable. The Waikiki that I grew up in is gone. I'm all for protecting people's privacy, but this happened in public. I'm all in favor of the placement of more police cameras in public places to catch criminals and wrongdoers. Condo associations should quit bickering about whether their members have their neighbors' apartments are painted the right color, and instead put up cameras that have humans watching them 24 hrs a day who call the police immediately if there are bums hanging around their property The same goes for cameras monitoring traffic violators, not only for speeders but drivers who block intersections -- with tickets issued to car owners whose cars are blocking intersections. Since these infractions are civil rather than criminal in nature, the car owner can be made to pay the ticket unless the owner turns in the person who was driving the car and makes the driver pay.
