Canadian Woman Stabbed More Than One Hundred Times

By Minna Sugimoto

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Disturbing new details in the stabbing death of an elderly Canadian woman in Waikiki. Prosecutors go before an Oahu grand jury, telling the panel the murder was especially heinous and cruel.

With a big smile on her face and Diamond Head in the background, Ingeborg Jandura of Canada poses for the camera next to Waikiki Beach. Her smile is now gone, and her long-time husband is accused of her murder.

"The decedent died a particularly gruesome and grisly death," Rom Trader, deputy prosecutor, said.

Police went to the Ilikai Hotel over the weekend, and found Ingeborg Jandura dead inside her unit. Prosecutors say the 82-year-old was stabbed repeatedly.

"The Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy," Trader said. "And that revealed at least, at least 100 separate stab wounds that were inflicted upon her."

Now, an Oahu grand jury indicts 83-year-old Ted Jandura on an enhanced murder charge that carries a life sentence with no chance of parole.

Because Jandura is not a US citizen and appears to have some financial resources available to him, prosecutors asked that he be held without bail. The judge granted that request.

"Age is not the best indicator of whether or not a person is going to show, whether or not they're going to be a flight risk, whether or not they are capable of doing such horrific things to other people," Trader said.

Jandura's next step will be his arraignment at Circuit Court. A date isn't set.
