A Waipahu man who allegedly fatally stabbed a 19-year-old man with a large kitchen knife in Honolulu appeared in Honolulu District Court today.
A.J. Achuo was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Jeremy Kinon.
Judge Russel Nagata confirmed his bail at $1 million and set his preliminary hearing for Friday.
At about 1:20 a.m. Saturday at 729 Kinau St., a witness told police Achuo and Kinon were arguing when Achuo stabbed him once in the stomach with a kitchen knife with an eight-inch blade, according to a court document.
Kinon fell to the ground and Achuo fled while carrying the knife. Police said Achuo entered a room where another witness was located. The witness grabbed the knife away from Achuo and threw it to the side of the room before the witness fled.
Emergency Medical Services transported Kinon to Queen’s Medical Center in “extremely critical condition” where he died from the stab wound.
Police located Achuo — who had blood on his hands and clothes — inside the room. The knife also was recovered.
