Brian Lee Smith:

On top of second-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder charges, he was charged with four firearm violations, was sent to jail after he was released from the hospital, but was then released in error from HCCC on July 24. He called police two days later from South Kona to turn himself in, and was returned to HCCC with bail set at $2 million.
