Honolulu Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Janice Futa told a new jury Thursday that State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy was fueled by alcohol and power when he shot Kollin Elderts in the McDonald's in 2011.
It's been about a year since Deedy's first trial ended with a deadlocked jury.
Deedy claims he shot Elderts in self-defense. The agent from Arlington, Va., was in Honolulu providing security for an economic summit but was off-duty during the early morning shooting, KITV News reports.
