Local man faces murder charges in Alabama

LIHU’E — A Kapa’a man was unable to make his court appointment in the Lihu’e Fifth Circuit Court on Monday morning for pending charges because he is being held on murder charges in Alabama.

Allen John Ho, released on bail for local charges, is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail in Monroeville, Alabama.

After a standoff with the police, Ho allegedly barricaded himself inside a home and killed his girlfriend in a domestic violence incident, according to a report by WKRG, a local Alabama television station.

After the June 21 incident, Ho then shot himself in the head. He was hospitalized before being incarcerated in the Monroe County Correctional facility. He is being held on a $1 million bond.

Ho’s defense counsel is filing a request for his extradition to can be prosecuted for the charges he faces in Kaua’i.

The Hawai’i state prosecutor requested a National Crime Information Center report from Alabama, which there currently has been no verification or documentation provided by the state or Ho’s local legal counsel. Ho’s legal counsel said they would e-mail the documents to the state prosecuting attorney.

Ho was held in Kaua’i on four separate charges, including criminal property damage, assault in the third degree, and unauthorized use of a vehicle. All charges were filed in 2015.

Ho was released on bail in Kaua’i in early 2016.

The next hearing for Ho’s local cases is scheduled for Nov. 9. It is unclear whether Ho will be extradited from Alabama to be present at the hearing.

    Where is the story about KPD Mark Begley settlement that cost the county of Kauai taxpayers $1,500,000 for harassment against KPD?

    This is another example of the power and control the county of Kauai has over its citizens.

    The lack of attention in these lawsuits that identify public corruption within KPD is plagued by some sort of mute button by TGI.

    This is not even close to having almost 100 witnesses to validate the biggest public corruption case in the state of Hawaii against KPD.

    Yes there is almost 100 witnesses that would sustain a validate civil and criminal complaint against KPD top brass of the previous and current command within kpd and other departments on Kauai that is connected with leaking information to criminals and criminal organizations to retaliate for KPD.

    The biggest story that is being silenced like this story and many more.
