Double murder suspect seeks new lawyer

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) Court observers will be watching to see if a Hilo man accused of a double-homicide shows up for todays hearing after Circuit Judge Greg Nakamura declined his request for a new attorney.

Sean Ivan Matsumoto said he would not return to court unless Nakamura replaced Deputy Public Defender Jeffrey Ng, who he claims has not provided him adequate representation. Nakamura says indigent criminal defendants must show good cause in order to replace an attorney.

Matsumoto is charged with murder and other crimes in the shotgun killings of his 45-year-old girlfriend Rhonda Lynn Alohalani Ahu and her 74-year-old mother Elaine Ahu.
