HONOLULU — The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the remains of two people found in a burnt-out home where a man allegedly shot and killed two Honolulu police officers and attacked a neighbor before setting the house ablaze last weekend.

Officials on Friday released a statement identifying the homeowner, Lois Ann Cain, 77, as one of the two people found in the house that was destroyed by fire in an upscale neighborhood near Waikiki Beach.

A tenant, Jaroslav “Jerry” Hanel, is accused of shooting police who were responding to the home after he allegedly attacked and stabbed a woman who also lived in the house.

Cain was in the process of evicting Hanel when the violence erupted on Sunday.

The medical examiner also identified the second set of remains but withheld a name pending notification of next of kin.

There are no indications of any firearms being registered to any residents of the house police, said. Police recovered multiple firearms in the rubble. They were being examined for ownership and serial numbers.

There was no information available Friday on services for Kalama.
