A 54-year-old Mountain View woman wanted on Hawaiʻi Island was taken into custody on the mainland Monday morning (June 27).

Patricia Wong, also known as Patricia Hanoa, was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in Las Vegas. Wong was wanted on a grand jury indictment charging her with second-degree murder in the 2009 death of Kaycee Smith.

An extradition hearing will be scheduled for Wong, and the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney will seek to have her extradited to Hawaiʻi.

Police thank the public for several telephone and email tips providing information about Wong.
