HILO, Hawaii – The mother of “Peter Boy” Kema has been granted supervised released.
Jaylin Kema spent one year in prison on a plea deal with prosecutors, after she was arrested and charged with murder for the death of her son who went missing in 1997. As part of the deal, Jaylin agreed to testify against her husband, Peter Kema Sr.
Peter Kema pleaded guilty to manslaughter in April, and this week, as per the agreement, Kema revealed to prosecutors the location where he disposed of the Peter Boy’s body nearly two decades ago.
Per the court’s order, Jaylin Kema was processed for supervised release shortly after her return from court and was released from the Hawaii Community Correctional Center just after 10 a.m., Hawaii Department of Public Safety officials stated.
Under her supervised release conditions, Jaylin Kema may not leave the island, and must not own or possess any drugs or alcohol. Kema may not contact any of her family members involved in the case.
