A Makiki man has been charged with second-degree murder after he allegedly stabbed his wife Tuesday night.
Police were called to their unit in Pacificana Apartments at 1125 Young Street shortly before 11 p.m.
“Upon arrival to the scene, officers determined that an adult female had been arguing with her husband. The argument escalated and she was stabbed multiple times,” said Capt. Walter Ozeki with HPD’s Criminal Investigation Division.
The 42-year-old victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition where she later died.
Ozeki said the suspect, Marcelo Carcamo Lopez, 41, initially fled the scene, but “returned to the residence while the investigation was still being conducted.”
Police say Lopez was identified as a suspect and arrested.
His bail was set at $1 million.
