HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 68-year-old woman is in a coma with head trauma after a suspected assault in her home in Black Point.

EMS responded to a 911 call at the home on Oct. 19 and transported the woman to the hospital.

Multiple sources say her 69-year-old husband told doctors she fell.

Doctors notified Honolulu police that her injuries were not consistent with a fall and an assault investigation was started. No arrests have been made.

Crime scene officers were in the home Thursday night collecting evidence.

The woman’s husband is a relative of acting city Prosecutor Dwight Nadamoto.

When asked how the case would be handled, a spokesman for the City Prosecutor’s Office said:

"If police believe a crime may have been committed and forward the results of an investigation to the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney for review while Dwight Nadamoto is serving as Acting Prosecuting Attorney, the Department will conflict the case out to the Attorney General’s office.”
