LIHU‘E — The suspect in a Wainiha stabbing that left a man hospitalized has pled not guilty to a felony assault charge.
Gregory Fejeran Jr., 59, of Ha‘ena was arrested Jan. 9 around 7 p.m., after police responded to a reported stabbing at a Wainiha residence.
Upon arrival, personnel with the Kaua‘i Police Department and Kaua‘i Fire Department found the victim, a 52-year-old O’ahu man, had been stabbed multiple times with a knife.
Fejeran Jr. was placed under arrest and transported to the KPD cellblock, while the victim was transported to Wilcox Medical Center in serious condition, according to a KPD spokesperson earlier this month.
The victim has since been moved to Queens Medical Center on O‘ahu and is in stable condition.
Fejeran Jr. appeared from the Kaua‘i Community Correctional Center via Zoom to enter his not guilty plea on Tuesday. Fejeran Jr. remains in custody on a $100,000 bail. The court stated that supervised release is not recommended.
A pretrial conference is scheduled for April 4, while a jury trial is set for May 2.
