Prosecutors today charged 26-year-old Jacob Le of Kapahulu with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Brent Keola Kanae.

Kanae, 23, also of Kapahulu, was found unconscious and bleeding after being stabbed in a stairwell Oct. 3 at 3 p.m. at Ala Moana Center.

Bail for Le was set at $250,000.

He was arrested Thursday at 3:40 p.m. on suspicion of second-degree murder. 

Le lives in an apartment on Cambpell Avenue, and neighbors described him as shy.

The stabbing happened in a stairwell used by employees at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., where Kanae was a line cook.

Someone mentioned that he was obsessed with his ex-gf and the guy he stabbed was friends with the ex-gf. If true, such a tragedy.

Jacob Le will soon have a new career dancing for the inmates in OCC and providing after hours entertainment by special request. Nothing worse than having friends you don't want to have for the next 10 years. What were you thinking Jacob?
