A 29-year-old Paiwa Street man charged in the stabbing death of another Waipahu man early Sunday morning is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in District Court on Jan. 10.
Peter David made his first court appearance before District Court Judge Paula Devens this morning on charges of second-degree murder and second-degree assault. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
A witness told police that David fought Santhony Albert, 27, in front of Albert’s home on Awanei Street in lower Waipahu about 1 a.m.
Albert was taken in critical condition to Hawaii Medical Center West, where he died. Police said he suffered at least one stab or puncture wound to the upper left side of his body.
