The second go-around in the murder retrial for Christopher Deedy could soon be coming to an end.
The jury went into deliberation Tuesday afternoon after hearing both the prosecution and defenses closing arguments. Back in 2011, Deedy shot and killed Kollin Elderts inside a Waikiki McDonalds. Now it's up to jurors to decide whether it was a crime, or self defense.
As they've been doing throughout the past month prosecutors painted the picture of Deedy being drunk that night in McDonalds. They claim that Deedy was the aggressor and say that he was the one who kept coming at Elderts and that he could have stopped and walked away.
However, Deedy's attorneys say just the opposite. They say that it was Elderts who kept approaching Deedy and the federal agent couldn't just walk away because of his duty as an officer.
"A lot of what Ms. Futa wants you to believe is not supported by the video and when your theory of why somebody is guilty is not supported by the video, ladies and gentlemen that's what reasonable doubt is," said Thomas Otake, defense attorney for Christopher Deedy.
"The state has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he defendant did not act in self defense, that he did not act in defense of Adam Gutowski, nor was he justified in using deadly force as a law enforcement officer," said Janice Futa, deputy prosecutor.
The state made it clear that it wants Deedy to be found guilty of murder in the second degree as well a use of firearms charge.
The jury also has other options to look in this trial including "reckless manslaughter" an "EMED manslaughter charge" and two different charges of assault.
Back in the first trial, it took the jury nearly six days before the court decided that they could not come up with a verdict resulting in a mistrial.
