On Friday, FBI special agents arrested Ailsa “Lisa” Jackson, 24, in Fort Wayne.
The federal arrest warrant was issued for the Indiana resident by the U.S. District Court of Hawaii.
Jackson was recently indicted by a federal grand jury in Honolulu on first-degree murder charges related to the stabbing.
The indictment alleges that Jackson initially stabbed the victim, Catherine Walker, to death after substantial planning and premeditation.
In court Monday, Jackson waived her identification hearing. Officials said she will be immediately transported to Hawaii.
The U.S. Attorney’s office has not yet announced the penalties it will seek.
