Verdict expected Thursday in taxi driver murder trial

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- The man accused of beating a taxi driver to death should learn his fate on Thursday.

A circuit judge is scheduled to issue his verdict for 19-year-old Michael Robles.

The suspect maintains it was his co-defendant Kilani Derego who repeatedly punched and kicked 41-year-old Ty Tang last year in Waipahu.

However, Derego says he wasn't with Robles that night.

Derego's trial starts in October.
