Closing Arguments Presented in Deedy Trial

Closing Arguments Presented in Deedy Trial

Honolulu Deputy Prosecutor Janice Futa called State Department special agent Christopher Deedy a "bully with a badge" in her closing argument this morning.  Deedy is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Kollin Elderts of Kailua at a Waikiki McDonald's in November 2011. Futa also blamed Deedy's drinking and inexperience for the shooting. After Futa is finished with her closing argument, Deedy's lawyer Brook Hart will present his closing statements and then Futa can rebut.  After that, the jury gets the case to deliberate. Jurors can only choose between convicting or acquitting Deedy of second-degree murder. Lesser charges are not on the table.
