Attorney Bridget Morgan-Bickerton said the 911 call confirms the incident was simply a misunderstanding gone horribly wrong.
“The caller does not mention burglary. I can hear a very calm, peaceful conversation going on in the background between the caller and her husband or her partner, and it sounds like Mr. Myeni,” explained Morgan-Bickerton.
“There’s no shouting, and there are no weapons, there’s no attack. This was a misunderstanding. This was a complete overreaction. There is no way Mr. Myeni could have known it was the police; there’s very little time between the call and when they arrived. He did not know these were the police.”
The Bickerton Law Group filed with First Circuit court last week a notice of an oral videotaped deposition. The group wants to question the 911 caller, Sabine Shiying Wang, her husband, Dexter Wang, and the homeowner on 91 Coelho Way, James H. Hall.
In a statement, James Bickerton wrote:
“The Wangs appear to be in hiding and trying to avoid service of the subpoena. They need to step forward and say what they know.”
The depositions are scheduled separately at the end of the month and heard before the Ralph Rosenbery Court Reporter firm.
Last month, Myeni’s widow, Lindsay Myeni, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the City and County of Honolulu and the three officers involved.
