A woman accused of murdering a homeless woman in downtown Honolulu made her first appearance in court Wednesday.

Police say Kimberly Udo, 42, beat Sandra Wollaston, 46, on Bishop Street at around 4:30 a.m. Monday.

According to court documents, Udo was walking her dog when she got into an argument with Wollaston. As the argument escalated, Udo kicked Wollaston in the head as she sat on the ground.

Udo then allegedly continued to kick and punch Wollaston multiple times before she was pulled away by a bystander.

Wollaston was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition and later died.

Police say Udo and Wollaston knew each other.

Udo remains behind bars, unable to post $500,000 bail.
