    Jahsiah Price-Brown appeared for his arraignment for a double stabbing in Ewa Beach on Dec. 23. He pleaded not guilty.

A 24-year-old Ewa Beach man pleaded not guilty today in connection with the stabbing of his ex-girlfriend and her mother.

Jahsiah Price-Brown appeared at Circuit Court this morning via closed circuit video link from the Oahu Community Correctional Center for his arraignment. Deputy public defender Edward Aquino entered a plea of not guilty on behalf of Price-Brown. An Oahu grand jury indicted Price-Brown last week for attempted murder. He remains in custody on $2 million bail.

According to court documents and a deputy prosecutor, Price-Brown allegedly choked and punched his ex-girlfriend at his home and stabbed her in the chest on Dec. 23.

Her mother entered the home after she heard her daughter call for help. Price-Brown’s ex-girlfriend went to the kitchen and saw her mother in a struggle with Price-Brown.

The woman jumped on and choked Price-Brown in an attempt to get him off her mother.

Price-Brown then allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend’s mother as she attempted to flee from the home.

A neighbor, who said he saw the attack through a window, broke in through the front door and pulled the mother out of the house. He returned to the home when he allegedly saw Price-Brown stabbing the other woman as she was lying on the sofa.

At some point, Price-Brown’s ex-girlfriend calmed him down and took the knife from his hand before she staggered out of the home.

Police recovered an 8-inch knife covered with blood just outside the front door.

The two women were taken to Queen’s Medical Center where they underwent surgery. Both suffered rib fractures during the stabbing.
