A 26-year-old man has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a 19-year-old man in Honolulu.
A.J. Achuo of Waipahu was charged Sunday with second-degree murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
The victim’s name has yet to be released by the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office.
At about 1:20 a.m. Saturday, police said Achuo and the victim were involved in an altercation at 729 Kinau St. when Achuo allegedly stabbed him with a dangerous instrument.
Police arrested Achuo at the scene about 20 minutes after the fatal stabbing.
Emergency Medical Services treated the victim and transported him to a trauma hospital in critical condition where he later died from his injuries.
Paramedics also transported a second man described to be in his 20s to a hospital in serious condition.
Achuo has a criminal record of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, as well as disorderly conduct and driving under the influence of an intoxicant by mental impairment. His first offense and inattention to driving are classified as petty misdemeanors.
