Local News

A man charged with murdering his relative in Kaneohe Tuesday evening appeared in court Friday.

Bryan Lucrecio, 47, is accused of stabbing a 55-year-old man in the back during an argument. The incident occurred at around 5:30 p.m. at a home on Waikapoki Road.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital in extremely critical condition where he was pronounced dead.

“The incident was witnessed by another family member and these family members did detain the suspect and he was identified and arrested,” said Lt. Philip Lavarias of the Honolulu Police Department.

Court documents identified the victim as Darryl Tomita.

According to documents, witnesses told police Tomita was actually arguing with another family member when Lucrecio stabbed him in the back.

Documents say Lucrecio took off and when police eventually tracked him down, he said, “I know why you here. I stabbed Darryl because of a family dispute. I sorry I did that.”

Lucrecio was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder. His bail was set at $500,000.
