Prosecutors have charged a 34-year-old Moloaa man in connection with the stabbing death of his 68-year-old mother on Kauai.
Louis E. Landsman was charged with second-degree murder today after he allegedly fatally stabbed his mother, Charlene Landsman of Kapaa, with a large hunting knife at First Hawaiian Bank in Lihue.
He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance at the Fifth Circuit Court today. Landsman’s bail has been set at $1 million.
Police said a male suspect later identified as Landsman entered the bank where his mother worked and stabbed her at about 1:15 p.m. Thursday.
Medics transported Charlene Landsman to Wilcox Hospital in critical condition where she died.
Police said Louis Landsman fled on foot from the scene. Officers apprehended him a short time later.
