Kauai Police have arrested a suspect in the death of a 21-year-old Kapa’a woman.

Officials say Kendra Lewis was found dead in her room Friday afternoon.

An autopsy conducted Monday confirmed that she died as a result of stab wounds.

Steven Michael Wilson, of Kapa’a, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

The 26 year old remains in police custody in lieu of $1 million bail.

Police believe Wilson, who was initially classified as a person of interest in the case, was living with the Lewis at the time of her death at the Kawaihau Sports Villa condominium.

The two relocated here from Alaska at around the beginning of the year.

Police located Wilson Saturday afternoon and brought him in for questioning. He was subsequently arrested and charged for the crime.

Wilson’s arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.
