KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a woman was stabbed to death in the middle of a street in Windward Oahu Saturday. Investigators say the suspect, identified by neighbors as the victim's ex-boyfriend, then jumped to his death off the H-3 Freeway.

A usually quiet neighborhood in Kaneohe was jolted by screams at about 12:30 PM.

"My dog started barking because of all the other dogs, and then I heard just like some screaming," Andrew Blanco, neighbor, said.

"I saw this lady lying in the street there and about three or four people bending over her giving her CPR, first aid," Winchell Lee, neighbor, said. "I didn't know what happened. I thought she was hit by a car."

She wasn't. Police believe the 33-year-old woman was stabbed by her ex-boyfriend.

"She broke it off last night," Emmett Cadinha, neighbor, said. "So this is why they was over the house. The mother was with her coming to the house to pick up the clothing."

Investigators say the victim saw damage to her belongings when she and her mother arrived at the Kapunahala Road home, and called 911. Police say their officers were en route when the attack happened.

"The suspect then apparently had punched or assaulted the mother of the victim," Lt. David Kamai, Honolulu Police Department, said. "Then the victim had ran down the driveway, where the suspect actually caught up to her at the bottom of the road and stabbed her."

The stabbing victim died at Castle Medical Center. Her mother was treated for injuries to her face.

"I don't like that," Cadinha said. "Not at all. Not at all."

Police say the 27-year-old suspect then took the victims' SUV and drove to the H-3 Freeway, where a witness saw him jump over the edge and fall some 200 feet. He died at the scene.

Investigators say they found no prior cases of domestic violence between the two.

"It's sad that something like that has to happen," Lee said. "The relationship, I guess, didn't work out, so he wasn't able to handle it."
