A 23-year-old woman accused of fatally stabbing her husband in Moanalua appeared in Honolulu District Court today.
Evelin Iturbide appeared before Judge James Kawashima after she was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder in the death of Sgt. Juan Iturbide. Deputy Public Defender Charles Cryan appeared on Iturbide’s behalf.
She didn’t speak and mostly kept her head down during her brief court appearance.
Kawashima confirmed her bail at $750,000.
Police said a woman later identified as Iturbide allegedly stabbed her husband, 24, at a residence on Ala Kapuna Street late Sunday. He was transported to Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center where he died from a stab wound to the chest.
Police arrested her at the residence on suspicion of second-degree murder.
Sgt. Juan Iturbide, a native of Orange, Calif., was stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base Hawaii and served as a food service specialist.
