Hearing delayed in slaying case
A preliminary hearing for the suspect in a January homicide has been delayed until later this month.
On Tuesday, Hilo District Court Judge Harry Freitas granted 48-year-old Walter Boyd Bremmer of Mountain View a postponement until Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. The continuance was granted to allow his attorney, Stanton Oshiro, time to prepare.
Bremmer is charged with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and use of a firearm in a felony for the slaying of 52-year-old Robert John “Johnny” Leong of Eden Roc.
Leong was found dead outside his home on Jan. 28. An autopsy found that he died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head and strangulation with a cord-like object.
