A man who is accused of stabbing a person to death in Waikiki in December of 2022 accepted a guilty plea to a lesser felony within a short time of his upcoming trial for murder. A guilty plea was entered by Lionel Winebush for the charge of first-degree assault. A dispute that took place in Waikiki is said to have resulted in Winebush stabbing Toni Taki, who was then taken to the hospital, where he ultimately passed away.

A disagreement between the two groups led to the occurrence of the event that occurred on December 6, 2022, according to the records filed before the court.

Supposedly, Winebush was a member of one of the groups who drove into Waikiki in order to get revenge on the other group that Taki was working with.
