Honolulu police have charged a woman with first-degree robbery and kidnapping in a case involving the killing of a man who was beaten at his Kaneohe home and shot multiple times on a busy street in May.
Police say Melissa Ordonez, who changed her name to Rihanna Joy Valentino, had told two men now charged with the murder of Benjamin Grajeda, 27, of North Hollywood, Calif., that he had a large amount of money and drugs in his apartment, according to a police affidavit released yesterday.
On May 14, residents living on Puuohalai Place in Kaneohe remembered seeing a woman leaving the quiet street after hearing a scuffle at Grajeda's first-floor apartment. Police had questioned Ordonez after the killing and arrested her nearly a year later.
Melissa has served her time and is home. Don't miss her story and her message...
