Hawaiʻi Island police detectives have completed their investigation into a 2013 murder in Hilo.
In response to a 5:19 a.m. call on January 7, 2013, South Hilo patrol officers found 38-year-old Lloyd Rubio of Hilo with a stab wound at a home on the 1400 block of Kaumana Drive. He was taken to Hilo Medical Center, where he died at 7:11 a.m.
That evening, detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section arrested 37-year-old Cherie Sueko Moskwa of Hilo on suspicion of second-degree murder.
Two days later, after conferring with Hawaiʻi County prosecutors, detectives released Moskwa from police custody pending further investigation.
Additional follow-ups and analysis were recently completed. The case has been routed to the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney for review.
