(KHNL) - It's never too late to get help if you're a victim of domestic abuse. That's the message one group wants everyone to know, as it remembers the state's first victim of domestic violence this year.

The Hawaii State Coalition Against Domestic Violence says victims can always call groups like theirs. That's the first step in getting help.

Group members lead a silent march around the state capitol, in memory of Ingeborg Jandura. They hold signs urging people to stand up and speak out against violence. And there's no excuse for domestic abuse.

"It's a tragic death, as every single time there is a domestic violence related death," said Esther McDaniel, a domestic violence educator at the coalition.

Honolulu police found the 82-year old body at the Ilikai hotel last month, with more than 100 stab wounds to her body.

"In this case, it brings to mind there's no barrier to race, age, social or economic background, and domestic violence can affect any home," said McDaniel.

Police say her husband, 83-year old Ted Jandura, confessed to the crime. He is charged with second degree murder, and faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Six people in Hawaii died in domestic violence cases last year.

The coalition says it's never too late to try and get help.

"You can always call any of us for help," said McDaniel. "Foster peace in your home, in your community, don't be afraid to speak out against domestic violence."
