Father, mother, grandmother indicted for Hilo girl’s murder

Police on Friday arrested three family members for the murder of a 9-year-old girl.

Hilo Criminal Investigation Section detectives arrested 49-year-old Kevin Lehano, 33-year-old Tiffany Stone and 59-year-old Henrietta H. Stone at approximately 3 p.m. for second-degree murder on a bench warrant following an indictment Wednesday by a Hilo grand jury.

The indictment was sealed until Lehano, the father, Tiffany Stone, the mother, and Henrietta Stone, the maternal grandmother, could be taken into custody.

The girl was found unresponsive June 28, 2016, at her Kinoole Street home in Hilo after police and fire personnel were summoned on a report of an unresponsive child. First responders found what appeared to be a severely malnourished and unconscious young girl lying on the floor within the home.

She was taken to the Hilo Medical Center where she died a few hours later.

All three defendants are being held at the police cellblock in Hilo in lieu of $100,000 bail each, pending their initial court appearance scheduled for Monday in Hilo District Court.
