    Waiser Walter


    Someone left a tiny remembrance for the 4-year-old stabbed to death Monday in his McCully apartment on Lime Street.

The Medical Examiner’s Office identified the 4-year-old boy who died from a knife attack at a Moiliili apartment Wednesday as Jeremiah Roke.

On Wednesday, prosecutors charged Waiser Walter with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder. His bail is set at $1 million.

He was scheduled to make his initial appearance in District Court today.

Walter, who lived with the boy and woman and other relatives at an apartment on Lime Street, allegedly stabbed the boy and a 29-year-old woman multiple times Monday afternoon in the apartment.

The two victims were taken to the hospital, where the boy died and the woman, the boy’s aunt, remains hospitalized.

Police initially said the boy was five years old.

  • We shouldn’t be allowing immigrants without a skillset or motivation for betterment into our state. All we get are people who abuse our generous welfare system and bring their criminal mindset to wreak havoc on our community.

  • Somehow the sadness felt by this tragic incident is not for the child. The sorrow is for the young and trouble man that seem to be possess by evil entities. As for the little boy, he is taken up to paradise where his spirit will live forever in the presence of angels and God! My heart sing with joy because Jeremiah will never ever face the ugliness and pains of our trouble world! How envious I am of him whom was taken up on Angels’ wings!
