HONOLULU (AP) - A man acquitted in the stabbing of two people at the Koko Head hiking trail is being allowed to attend college.
Benjamin Davis was found not guilty of attempted murder by reason of insanity after the random and repeated stabbing of the two hikers in 2009.
A judge on Tuesday granted his request to take classes at Windward Community College unsupervised, allowing him to leave Hawaii State Hospital two days a week.
He has been taking classes at the college for a few months under supervision.
Stabbing victim Nicholas Iwamoto was stabbed 18 times. He said he's upset that Davis is free to receive an education while Iwamoto hasn't been able to return to work and can't afford to go back to school.
