Couple indicted on attempted murder charges for firing at Hawai‘i police officers
A husband and wife were indicted by a Kona Grand Jury on Tuesday on a slew of charges, including first-degree attempted murder for shooting at Hawai‘i police officers last week during an early-morning crime spree in Kona.
Dylan and Leilani Alcain are facing the same 11 offenses stemming from alleged crimes that occurred on April 20. Police say they broke into two Hele gas stations — one in Kona and the other in Captain Cook; committed an armed robbery in the Kona Paradise Subdivision in South Kona; and fired at police officers who were attempting to pull them over. The pair was charged as principal and/or accomplice in all offenses.
Dylan Alcain had one additional first-degree burglary charge stemming from a break-in at a Texaco on Waikōloa Road on April 14.
The couple appeared in Kona District Court on Monday for an initial appearance where the judge maintain bail for both Dylan and Leilani Alcain. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for today. However, with the indictments, the case will move to 3rd Circuit Court.
A court date has yet to be scheduled.
