"This is what I wake up to and what I go to sleep to. That's all I have left and memories," said Eunice Goo.
In the courtroom, she put her hand on a black box containing the ashes of her nephew, 11-year-old Samuel Kassebeer. On the front of the box was a smiling picture of the young boy.
Just a few feet away stood 22-year-old Travis Murray.
Prosecutors said Murray was racing against Herbert Kaio-Campbell in Waimanalo on July 25, 2010, when Campbell slammed into the car carrying Kassebeer and his two aunties.
"They have just decided say he was racing. He didn't start any race. He was trying to get home," said Murray's attorney Michael Green.
"This family is never going to believe that," he said.
"No, we won't," answered a family member from the galley.
"I understand. I understand that," answered Green.
Kassebeer was ejected from the car and died.
His aunties who were seriously injured, said two years later, the pain and the scars still run deep.
