Sources identify Wahiawa crash, Makiki murder victims as husband, wife

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

UPDATE 5:10 a.m. on FRIDAY: Sources Identify Victims
Sources have identified the man who was killed in a fiery Wahiawa crash and the woman who was murdered in her Makiki apartment as married couple Eric and Sheryll Filiaga.

Sources say despite the fact that Sheryll's death was reclassified by police as a murder, they are not looking for any suspects at this time because they believe Eric, 37, committed the crime.

Hawaii News Now has learned that Sheryll Filiaga worked as a wedding planner and as a realtor with Hawaii Five-O Vacation Rentals.

ORIGINAL STORY:
Neighbors of the complex started noticing a foul odor coming from a first floor unit in the apartments at 1448 Young Street.

"It filled the hallway," says one woman, who didn't want her name revealed, "You had to walk by it to get out."

Police found the body of the 30-year old woman in the bedroom of apartment 110.  She had been stabbed in the neck, back, and arms.

It's unclear how long she had been dead.

But two days earlier, her 37-year old husband died in a fiery crash in Waihiawa.  Cell phone video from witnesses show the car burst into flames.

Drivers told police the SUV was weaving in and out of traffic before slamming into a large, metal pole.

The husband does have a criminal record, mostly with traffic violations, but there is a family violence case and there was a TRO filed against him by his ex-wife.

We are not releasing the couples names because the woman's family has not been notified of her death.
