Honolulu murder suspect arrested in Fort Wayne

News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A fugitive wanted in connection with the stabbing death of a woman in Hawaii was arrested in Fort Wayne.

According to the FBI in Honolulu, Ailsa “Lisa” Jackson, 24, was arrested by FBI Special Agents Friday at Coliseum Park Apartments off of Parnell Avenue and Ridgewood Drive, where she was living.

Jackson, listed as a resident of Indiana, was taken into custody on a federal arrest warrant issued by the U.S. District Court of Hawaii. Jackson is accused of killing Catherine Walker in November 2014 at Aliamanu Military Reservation, a housing complex on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu near Tripler Army Medical Center. Walker’s husband was a soldier assigned to Tripler at the time, according to WANE-tv’s sister station, KHON. Jackson was living on the military base because one of her parents was in the military, according to the FBI in Honolulu.

According to the CBS affiliate in Hawaii, this was a love triangle. Walker’s husband had been having an affair with Jackson. However, due to the ongoing investigation, the FBI is not releasing a motive or why Jackson was in Fort Wayne.

Jackson is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Indiana Monday for an extradition hearing. A date has not yet been set for her transportation to Honolulu, but the process usually takes about three weeks.

Jackson was recently indicted by a Honolulu grand jury on first-degree murder charges, according to the FBI. The maximum penalty for first-degree murder on a federal reservation is death or life imprisonment.
