Man charged in death of woman found in trash bin

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A man in Honolulu police custody on a charge of terroristic threatening is being held in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a commercial trash bin.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports 42-year-old Joseph Kahawai made a court appearance Thursday in the threat case and was arrested in the afternoon in the death of 51-year-old Janine Meyer.

KHON-TV reports he has not been formally charged.

Meyer's body was found Oct. 29 in a large metal bin near the Hawaiian Colony apartments off Ala Moana Boulevard in Waikiki.

The medical examiner has not announced the cause of death.

Police last week classified the death as unattended

Investigators in the first case say Kahawai on Oct. 20 threatened harm to another man. He was arrested Monday in Waipahu.
