A 42-year-old man appeared at Honolulu District Court today after he was charged with murder in connection with the death of a 29-year-old woman in Waikiki.
Jeremy J. Henderson was charged Saturday with second-degree murder in the death of the woman. Although the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office withheld the victim’s name and cause of death due to the pending investigation, a court document identified her as Ashley Brandeberry.
Judge Clarence Pacarro denied deputy public defender Cameron Holm’s request for a bail reduction Monday and confirmed Henderson’s bail at $1 million.
His preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
Shortly after 4:15 a.m. Friday, patrol officers and Emergency Medical Services responded to a defibrillator call for an unconscious woman inside a hotel room in Waikiki.
Police said Brandeberry was pronounced dead at 5:03 a.m.
Police arrested Henderson at the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel, 2500 Kuhio Ave. on suspicion of murder after police determined the woman suffered from suspicious injuries.
