Two hours later, a male family friend at the couple’s home called to say Alohaneke had returned and was banging on the door.

Epiepang, 52, was pronounced dead at the scene.  Her sister was taken to Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital with puncture wounds in the shoulder and a fractured humerus.

The family friend was unharmed.

Alohaneke was booked into the Fort Bend County Jail at about 11 p.m. Wednesday. He is being held under an ICE hold.

No bail amount has been set.
