Agent gears up for 2nd murder trial in Honolulu

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The federal agent charged with murder in a 2011 shooting inside a Waikiki fast-food restaurant is gearing up for a retrial.

State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy of Arlington, Virginia is back in Honolulu to stand trial a second time for killing Kollin Elderts during an altercation in the McDonald's restaurant. He contends it was in self-defense.

Last year's trial ended with a deadlocked jury.

Attorneys are hashing out what evidence they don't want the jury to hear.

A key difference this time around is that jurors will see a limited portion of a bystander's cellphone video taken in the aftermath of the shooting.

Judge Karen Ahn is ruling jurors won't see the part showing Deedy rendering aid to Elderts.

Jury selection begins next week.
