Diana T. Klegner
Charged with Attempted Murder


East Hawaii Criminal Investigation Section detectives have charged a twenty-nine year-old Hilo woman with second degree attempted murder and third degree assault in connection with an incident which occurred late yesterday afternoon (February 5, 2007).

Diana T. Klegner was arrested shortly before 6:00 p.m. yesterday (February 5, 2007) by South Hilo Patrol officers responding to a reported affray at an apartment complex in lower Waiakea Uka. Upon the officers’ arrival, they learned that a forty year-old woman had been stabbed numerous times and the person responsible had been restrained at the scene by two bystanders.

The victim was taken to the Hilo Medical Center where she received treatment for her wounds. Although initially listed in serious condition, the woman was released later in the evening.

Klegner is being held at the police cellblock in lieu of $250,000 bail. She will make her initial court appearance tomorrow (February 7, 2007) in South Hilo District Court.
