Convicted killer Justin Boulay has satisfied his first parole requirement of checking in with Hawaiian authorities within 24 hours of arriving in that state.

He was released from Illinois' Danville Correction Center on Tuesday morning after serving 12 years for killing his estranged college girlfriend, Andrea Will.

In the small neighborhood where Boulay will be living with the woman he married three years ago, residents were talking and opinions were divided.

"I would hate to think that someone was tracking my movements and telling people where I was going and what I was doing, especially if I'd made a change in my life," said Karen Edwards, one of Boulay's new neighbors. "Of course, if Charles Manson was moving in, I'd definitely want to know that."

Boulay's new wife is an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii Medical School.

Authorities on the island tried unsuccessfully to block his arrival and said Boulay will be closely watched.

"He will be restricted from being allowed to enter any college campus in Hawaii," said university spokesman Gregg Takayama.

Unless Boulay violates the conditions of his release, authorities in Hawaii said there is little they can do.

With Boulay, there are eight people convicted of a homicide on the mainland currently under parole supervision in Hawaii, HawaiiNewsNow.com reported. Four killers are from Oregon. Nevada, South Carolina, Washington and now Illinois have each sent one.

Will's family said Wednesday that any proceeds from the 30 or so vigils held a day earlier, including one in Hawaii, will benefit victims of domestic abuse.
