Federal agent Christopher Deedy took the stand expected to take the stand again Wednesday morning.
Tuesday afternoon he spent several hours answering questions from attorneys.
It's been 355 days since the last time Christopher Deedy took the stand in the first go around of his murder trial. That's over 8,500 hours.
Deedy is on trial for the second time for the murder of Kollin Elderts.
The first trial ended in a mistrial. That jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
The new jury heard the federal agent’s testimony.
It started off with a lot of background information about the rules of Deedy's job. One of those he said is that agents can drink alcohol while carrying a weapon as long as they are not under the influence.
Deedy also said he was trained to get involved in situations, even when off duty, if those situations presented harm to the public.
“I was personally encouraged by my agent in charge to get involved in these off-duty incidents that may pertain to violence whether you see it or it’s potentially there,” said Deedy.
The defense went on to question Deedy about his schedule when arriving to Honolulu for APEC, including the places he went to leading up to the situation at McDonald's where Elderts was shot.
Deedy also mentioned how much he drank leading up to that point.
Jessica West, the girlfriend of Deedy’s friend, took the stand earlier in the day.
West says she briefly left the restaurant. When she came back, she found Deedy leaning towards Kollin Elderts who was being loud and boisterous.
She says she saw Deedy show something to Elderts and after that things got heated.
Gotowski tried to intervene between the two and the fight escalated.
“After Adam got punched on the side of the head, she got propelled toward the side entrance. Eventually after being hit on the ground a few times, Kollin directed his attention at Chris and Kollin lunged at Chris,” said West.
West says that's when Elderts friend Shane Medeiros attacked Gotowski. When she was trying to break up that fight she heard what sounded like fireworks.
West testified that Deedy did not seem drunk.
The jury also heard testimony from a Queen's hospital nurse and a McDonald's customer.
The retrial is expected to wrap up around the middle of August.
