Wai’anae Hi. Oct. 30, 2007
Police have opened a homicide investigation into the stabbing death yesterday of a woman in Kalihi.
The woman, 44, was found in the bedroom of her first-floor apartment unit at 2110 Kahaha St. on the mauka side of Gulick Avenue by a police officer responding to a 911 call of a domestic argument about 2:30 p.m., said Lt. Bill Kato, supervisor of homicide investigations.
Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at the scene at 3:23 p.m., according to City Emergency Services spokesman Bryan Cheplic.
According to booking information at the main police station, Melchor B. Adviento, 50, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder at 2:40 p.m. before being taken to the hospital.
The man was at The Queen’s Medical Center last night in critical but stable condition with an apparent stab wound to the upper torso, Kato said.
Two kitchen knives were found at the scene.
Kato said the patrol officer who investigated the 911 call arrived at the apartment and found the door locked. A man bleeding from the chest area answered the officer’s knock, and the officer entered and found the woman’s body.
In another domestic stabbing attack yesterday, police arrested a 25-year-old man in Wai’anae who they said stabbed his mother and sister during an argument.
The man also injured a construction site security officer who tried to prevent him from fleeing the scene, police said. The attacks at 85-128 Ala Walua were reported to police at 3:07 p.m.
Robert Rios III, 25, who has an outstanding $500 warrant, was arrested at 5:30 p.m. on Ala Walua on suspicion of assault. Two women, ages 44 and 24, were taken to The Queen’s Medical Center, where they were in stable condition, Cheplic said.
