Kaimuki murder suspect indicted for first degree robbery

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kaimuki murder suspect Gary Landis was indicted on Wednesday for first-degree robbery, but he is currently in the hospital.

Landis, who is homeless, was involved in an altercation Monday afternoon at OCCC with two other pre-trial detainees and wound up hospitalized.

He is accused of hitting an elderly woman in the back of the head with a baseball bat at Ward last week, before grabbing her purse and taking off.

On June 2, he was arrested on suspicion of stabbing a Kaimuki newspaper salesman to death, but was released pending investigation.
