Kalihi Man Accused of Killing His Wife Appears in Court

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A man accused of stabbing his wife to death before turning the knife on himself appeared before an Oahu judge Friday.

Victorio Barayuga is charged with murder. The 61-year-old appeared in court with an obvious injury to his right wrist.

The stabbing happened at the couple's home on Akina Street June 13th. Sixty-three-year-old Liwliwa Barayuga died from a stab wound to her chest.

Paramedics rushed her husband to the hospital with what appeared to be a self-inflicted cut to his wrist.

Barayuga's preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday.
