HONOLULU — In a story Aug. 21 about a man found not guilty of murder, The Associated Press erroneously reported the length of his sentence for prior charges. Teddy Munet was sentenced to five years for escape and 10 years for robbery, to be served concurrently, not 30 years for the escape.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Inmate who escaped found not guilty of Oahu murder
Man who escaped while awaiting trial for '12 windward Oahu killing found not guilty of murder
HONOLULU — A man who escaped from custody while awaiting trial for killing his friend in a windward Oahu state park has been found not guilty of murder.
A jury found Teddy Munet not guilty of second-degree murder Thursday in the 2012 shooting death of William Fallau.
Last year, Munet was in handcuffs and a belly chain when he bolted from a loading dock at the Honolulu Circuit Court building, where he was scheduled for a pretrial hearing. Police arrested him 12 hours later. His escape prompted lockdowns in the area and later led to the state Department of Public Safety making changes to the way officers are trained.
The Honolulu prosecutor's office says Munet received a five-year sentence for the escape and 10 years for a related robbery charge, to be served concurrently.
