The boy was the son of Kyle McKeown, 32, of Wailuku. His 27-year-old live-in girlfriend, Grace Lee-Nakamoto, was also arrested and charged with murder.

Both McKeown and Lee-Nakamoto denied having any knowledge of how the boy received his injuries. The couple remains in police custody.
Bail was set at $500,000 each.
