Woman, 60, allegedly stabs daughter-in-law in Kaaawa

A 60-year-old woman is scheduled to appear at Honolulu Circuit Court Thursday after she allegedly stabbed her 36-year-old daughter-in-law with a kitchen knife in Kaaawa.

Sherry M.L. Kameenui, also known as Sherry Fuentes, was charged Friday with second-degree assault.

Honolulu police said the suspect stabbed her daughter-in-law in the chest after an altercation in the 51-300 block of Kekio Road around 8 p.m. on Dec. 7.

The victim was taken in serious condition to The Queen’s Medical Center.

Court documents say the victim sustained “a major laceration to the chest and/or a fractured sternum and/or vertebral artery dissection” in the assault.

Police arrested Kameenui at the scene on suspicion of second-degree assault. Officers recovered a knife from the scene.

Kameenui was released Friday after posting a $50,000 bail bond.

Second-degree assault is a class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison, if convicted.

Correction: The suspect is accused of stabbing her daughter-in-law, not her granddaughter as reported in a previous version of this story.
