Woman arrested in Indiana for Hawaii death of soldier’s wife
HONOLULU (AP – April 27, 2015) — The FBI says a woman accused of stabbing a soldier’s wife to death in Hawaii has been arrested in Indiana.
Ailsa Jackson appeared in federal court in Ft. Wayne, Indiana Monday, where she agreed to return to Hawaii to face a murder charge. The federal defender who represented her at the brief hearing declined to comment.
Catherine Walker was found dead in November in the home she shared with her husband at a military housing complex in Honolulu. The medical examiner’s office at the time said she died of stab wounds to her neck and torso.
An indictment alleges that the killing was premeditated.
The Army says Walker’s husband was assigned to Tripler Army Medical Center.
The FBI says it’s not clear when Jackson will be returned to Hawaii.
