HILO (KHNL) - A man who was found not guilty by reason of insanity for killing his girlfriend is set to be released from the state mental hospital.
Fifty-nine-year-old Curtis Kealoha was deemed fit for conditional release from the Hawaii State Hospital, where he lived since October 1996.
A judge found him not guilty be reason of insanity for the 1994 murder of 49-year-old Victoria Agres.
Circuit Judge Glen Hara reviewed reports from three doctors on Kealoha and signed a request for his conditional release on July 18.
Kealoha will live in a group home on Oahu and be monitored at all hours.
Prosecutors argue Kealoha is still a danger to the public and especially to women.
