Teen Girl Dies Following Altercation

WAIPAHU (KHNL) - An 18-year-old woman is dead after, police say, she got into a fist fight with her boyfriend.

Police responded to an argument call near Aniani Place in Waipahu at about 9:45 Wednesday night.

Investigators say the woman started having difficulty breathing, after an officer separated the fighting couple. Paramedics took her to a nearby hospital, where she later died.

The Medical Examiner's office identified her as 18-year-old Wendy Lealiiee. The M.E. did an autopsy Thursday, but deferred the cause of death pending further testing.

Police arrested the woman's boyfriend, 20-year-old Davis Iaulualo, for investigation of second-degree murder.

"I'm pretty sure he had no intentions of fatally hurting her 'cause their relationship was all right," Nick Terry, suspect's friend, said. "Everybody know he had a lot of love for her. And I just was shocked."

Friends say the young woman had a history of asthma. The suspect has not been charged.
