HILO, Hawaii (AP) — Law enforcement in Hawaii arrested social media model Courtney Clenny on Wednesday for second-degree murder with a lethal weapon.
Hawaii County Police said in a statement that it assisted the U.S. Marshals Service in arresting a 26-year-old boy from Laupahoehoe on the Big Island of Hawaii. Officers used an arrest warrant issued by Miami-Dade County, Florida.
Police said she was being held at the East Hawaii Detention Center pending her first appearance in Hilo District Court on Thursday.
The police statement did not provide details of the charges against her, but The Miami Herald reported That Clenny is accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend in April.
Her Miami attorney, Frank Prieto, told the Miami Herald that she was in Hawaii during rehab for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.
“I am completely shocked because we were cooperating with the investigation and had offered to voluntarily extradite her if charged,” Prieto said. I look forward to clearing the sky.”
