Juvenile Suspect in Ewa Beach Murder Arrested for More Offenses

EWA BEACH (KHNL) - A 15-year-old boy arrested this past May in connection with the murder of his Ewa Beach neighbor, faces new charges.

Police orginally arrested the boy with second degree murder after 51-year-old Karen Ertell was found strangled in her home.

Police arrested the boy Monday for additional offenses including first degree murder, first degree sexual assault, and three credit card offenses.

Prosecutors have filed a petition asking the family court to waive its jurisdiction over the boy.

They're still awaiting a decision.

The boy is being held at the Alder Street Jouvenile Detention center.
