Deedy Verdict Watch: Deedy makes appearance at courthouse

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Murder defendant Christopher Deedy and his attorney Brook Hart made an unexpected appearance at Circuit Court this morning.

At about 10:30 a.m. they entered a secured door on the third floor that leads to chambers for the judges.

About 45 minutes later prosecutor Janice Futa exited the same door without commenting.

Deedy and Hart followed a couple of minutes later, refusing to answer questions from reporters.

During the time the parties were in the building, paper was taped over the windows in the doors of Judge Karen Ahn's locked courtroom.

This is the sixth day a twelve-member jury has convened to determine a verdict in Deedy's murder trial.

The State Department special agent admits shooting and killing Kollin Elderts during a struggle in a Waikiki McDonald's in 2011.

The prosecutor said he was drunk and instigated the confrontation.

Deedy maintains Elderts , 23, attacked him and he fired his gun he in self defense.

Testimony in the the high-profile trial took 20 days.

If convicted of second-degree murder, the 29-year-old Deedy would face a life sentence with the possibility for parole.
