Woman charged with attempted murder in stabbing of boyfriend

Prosecutors charged a 21-year-old Waimanalo woman with attempted murder in connection with the stabbing of her boyfriend Sunday morning.

Ishia Kaawa was being held on $100,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in District Court this morning to face the charge.

Police said an argument between the couple escalated, and Kaawa allegedly stabbed a 22-year-old man Sunday morning on Oluolu Street in Waimanalo at about 8:30 a.m.

Paramedics took the man to the hospital in critical condition, an Emergency Services Department spokesman said.

Police arrested the woman at a nearby home shortly after the stabbing.
