Judge sets date for US agent's possible 3rd trial

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A judge is tentatively scheduling a possible third trial for a federal agent recently found not guilty of murder in the shooting death of a man in a Waikiki fast-food restaurant.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Janice Futa said after the jury acquitted Christopher Deedy of murder that she'll recommend another trial for manslaughter and assault. The jury wasn't able to agree on those lesser charges. The first jury a year ago deadlocked and a mistrial was declared.

Judge Karen Ahn met with attorneys Friday in her chambers. According to court minutes, Ahn scheduled trial for the week of Sept. 8 if the defense doesn't prevail in motions to stop another trial.

Defense attorney Thomas Otake says he plans to file motions to dispose of the charges and avoid another trial.
