HILO >> According to court documents, a woman says she stabbed her boyfriend in Pahoa after he threatened to kill her because a puppy defecated on his sofa.

Manaolanalani Lina Benford was arrested and later released after last month's stabbing death of Shane Kanoa Ah Chock Campbell.

Defecation happens. A soiled sofa is no reason to hurt anyone, even if the upholstery is totally destroyed. Brother wanted his woman to pay with her life. He paid with his. I guess it was worth dying for.....to him.
