Honolulu police are investigating an apparent attempted murder and suicide in Kailua.
Police say a 69-year-old Kailua woman went to the hospital Saturday with cuts to the head at about 10 a.m. About an hour later police said the woman's husband stabbed himself in the chest.
The man was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition and the woman was in serious condition, an Emergency Medical Services supervisor said.
Police recovered a steak knife with a 16-centimeter blade that had been lodged in the man's chest.
