Kōloa Man Charged with Attempted Murder
A Kōloa man is facing attempted murder and assault charges following a domestic incident last week.
On April 10, court documents indicate Kristofer Bush, 33, used a weapon to cause potentially life-threatening injuries to a 26-year-old Kōloa woman and substantial bodily injury to a 21-year-old ʻEleʻele man.
Bush appeared in 5th District on Wednesday for a preliminary where District Court Judge Michael Soong found probable cause to move the case forward to Circuit Court on charges of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, three counts of abuse of a family or household member, fourth-degree criminal property damage, second-degree resisting an order to stop a motor vehicle and prohibitions against obnoxious substances. He remains in custody in lieu of $500,000 bail.
If convicted as charged of the attempted murder offense, Bush faces a life imprisonment sentence. Bush’s initial appearance in Circuit Court is scheduled for May 3, 2022, before Judge Randal G.B. Valenciano.
