HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A young man accused of stabbing a woman to death while she was sleeping in her own apartment in Honolulu two years ago has been declared mentally fit to stand trial.

Sato Sigrah is charged with murder, attempted murder and burglary.

Prosecutors say Sigrah, who was 19, was drunk when he entered a Kapiolani apartment and fatally stabbed Lyola Mesebeluu, 26. He's also accused of stabbing the victim's husband, who rushed to her aid.

The couple's two-year-old daughter also suffered injuries.

A panel of mental health experts examined the defendant and determined that he understands the charges and is able to assist in his own defense.
