HONOLUU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The trial for a man accused in the fatal stabbing of a Waianae teacher is set to begin Monday.

A judge will decide Tittleman Fauatea's fate after he previously chose to wave his right to a jury trial.

According to officials, 43-year-old Asa Yamashita was stabbed repeatedly while sitting on a bench at the Ewa Town Center in 2009.

Earlier this year, Fauatea was ruled mentally fit to proceed to trial.
