    <strong><a href="

Maui police said a report of screaming heard in Kahului led officers to a murder victim.

Police said a caller reported hearing a female screaming from a Kahului property early Monday. When officers arrived at what police describe as a one-bedroom shack, they discovered a dead 43-year-old woman lying on the floor. She appeared to have been stabbed.

Officers searching the area around 794 Makalii St. found a man in the back portion of the property’s main dwelling. The 25-year-old man was taken into custody after police determined he had potential evidence linking him to the woman’s death. Police didn’t reveal what evidence was found.

Police said the woman and the man are related.

He had not been charged Monday afternoon.
