HONOLULU (AP) - Public outrage has led Windward Community College to revise a decision to allow a man acquitted in the stabbing of two hikers to attend college without supervision.
A judge had granted Benjamin Davis' request to take classes at the college unsupervised, allowing him to leave Hawaii State Hospital two days a week.
Davis was found not guilty of attempted murder by reason of insanity after the 2009 random and repeated stabbing of two hikers at the Koko Head hiking trail.
School officials said Thursday that in light of public concern, Davis will be escorted while on campus. The college also will add more security staff.
