Two suspects charged in the murder of a Hawaiian elementary school teacher reportedly asked police to end their lives after their arrest. The duo — 23-year-old Stephen Brown, and 20-year-old Hailey Kai Dandurand — attacked Telma Boinville, 51, and beat her to death at a Hawaii holiday home in North Shore.

Boinville was cleaning the vacation home Dec. 7 when the incident took place. Her eight-year-old daughter, Makana, was found uninjured but tied up in a separate room of the property with a bag placed over her head.

Though both Brown and Dandurand did not utter a word during their appearance in court Monday, according to the court documents obtained by Fox affiliate KHON2, Brown told police when he was detained, “Just shoot me, I deserve this.”

The documents also stated that while Dandurand was in custody she also told the police, “Can you just pull your gun out and shoot me in the head, my life is over after today.”

According to a report in the KHON2, Ken Lawson, a law professor at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law, said, “The defense may argue for a change of venue because of the overwhelming publicity with the case, arguing the client could not get a fair trial unless the case was moved to a different location where jurors are not aware of what is alleged to have happened.”

“Any defense counsel is probably going to file a motion arguing that the client was insane at the time and also a motion arguing whether or not the client was competent,” Lawson added.

Court documents stated that Boinville’s body was found lying in a pool of blood with murder weapons — hammer, knife, and mallet — found nearby. KHON2 reported that Boinville’s husband, Kevin Emery, claimed that his daughter could identify the suspects from a photo posted on social media. Makana explained to him that she was waiting outside in the family truck when a man with green hair and a woman came out of the house covered in blood. They took her into the house and tied her up, claimed the young girl.

The two accused were charged with second-degree murder, burglary, and kidnapping. Brown was also charged with a probation violation. A warrant for his arrest was issued and his bail was set at $1 million. Dandurand also had an additional charge of unauthorized possession of personal information as Boinville’s bank card was found in Dandurand’s shirt pocket, revealed the documents from the court. Her bail was set at $500,000.

According to the New York Post, Kik Emery, Boinville’s mother-in-law, during a candlelight vigil said, “Telma had a special love for every single person here. She just had a pure heart of kindness and pure aloha. My son absolutely loved her. They had a special bond … I hope and pray they caught the right people.”

A GoFundMe page was created on behalf of Boinville’s daughter, Makana. The fundraiser could raise $92,222 of $250,000 goal with the help of nearly 1500 people in five days.
