Man charged with murder in Kalihi stabbing

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:36 a.m. HST, Apr 21, 2013

Prosecutors charged a 21-year-old Kalihi man with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a 20-year-old Aiea man found early Friday morning on Halona Street in Kalihi.

Vainuupo Tosoga was being held on $150,000 bail after he was charged Saturday.

Police had also arrested a 19-year-old Kalihi man Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder, but he was released Saturday pending further investigation.

The Medical Examiner's Office identified the man whose body was found in Kalihi as 20-year-old Jason Oliveros, of Aiea.

Paramedics were called to Halona Street at 3 a.m. Friday and treated Oliveros for a trauma wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene about 40 minutes later.

Hawaii News Now reported Oliveros has been stabbed several times.

Police closed off the area from the Houghtailing offramp on H-1 westbound to Halona Street, and Kohou Street to Houghtailing Street as they investigated.

When is Hawaii going to get tough on gun control? This may have never happened if we had better gun control laws in place.

It would serve you well to read the article first. Reminds me of the old adage; It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. That being said, we need more laws to ban evil knives!

My sarcasm wasn't as obvious to some people, apparently. My point? Criminals will commit crimes with anything they can get their hands on and when they use guns, it isn't from buying them legally. If you can't spot sarcasm, it would serve you well to keep your mouth shut.

i did'nt catch your sarcasm in your original post however you should post on the story related to the shooting in Waikiki using an 'unregistered' fiream. Given Hawaii is surround by thousands of miles of open ocean and after 9/11, not that easy to smuggle in firearms. Problemsi in the past have been 'stolen' firearms. Possible owner sells or family member steals then gives away or sell gun, but no legal proof of gun owners real intentions of what actually happened to his 'stolen' gun. For example Adam Ma u Gofr edo obtained his firearm to murder 3 or 4 people from his caretaker who lived next door and left un unlocked firearm for Gofredo to easily obtain. Another case in Hawaii was an Iraq veteran, possibly with PTSD and known suicidal and homicidal issues, 'stole' a firearm from his brother or siste's condo and used it to murder a woman who befriended him, her child and their dog who lived at the base of Tantalus; and later used the gun on himself.
