HONOLULU (KHNL) - Another heart-wrenching delay for family and friends of an Ewa Beach woman who was raped and murdered in her home last year.

A teenaged boy is accused of killing Karen Ertell, 51. The two were neighbors.

A hearing took place Thursday morning on whether the 15-year-old suspect should be tried as an adult for the violent crime. But a Family Court judge put off her decision until early next month.
