In sentencing hearing, attorney tells jury that North Shore killer is a changed man
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A jury is now deciding whether North Shore killer Stephen Brown will spend the rest of his life in prison or will get a chance of parole.
His attorney says he’s a changed man and has become a born-again Christian.
“He’s not dangerous so that you must consider the protection of the public,” said Brown’s attorney William Bagasol.
But prosecutors say he’s still a danger to the public and should remain locked up.
“Surely whatever religious beliefs he now subscribes to were absent the day he buried a machete in Telma’s skull,” said Deputy Prosecutor Scott Bell.
The jury will continue deliberating Tuesday.
