HONOLULU (AP) - Christopher Deedy's defense attorney says that since April, the federal agent's world revolved around the lawyer's downtown Honolulu office, where he devoted himself to fighting a murder charge after shooting and killing a man in a Waikiki McDonald's restaurant.
Now that a mistrial has been declared, Deedy returns home to Arlington, Va., and to his job with the U.S. Department of State. But he'll have to come back and do it all over again.
Defense attorney Brook Hart says Deedy didn't stray far from his office while staying in different Honolulu locations.
Attorneys are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss scheduling a new trial.
Hart says Deedy and his family won't be here for that meeting because some of them left Monday night and the others are leaving Tuesday.
