Deliberations continue in Ala Moana stabbing murder

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Jurors in the Jacob Le murder trial will continue deliberations on Thursday.

Le stands accused of stabbing his friend Brent 'Keola' Kanae to death in a stairwell at Ala Moana Shopping Center last year.

Le's attorney argued that his confession was coerced by police and that Le, who is left-handed, couldn't have committed the murder because the three stab wounds in Kanae's chest show the killer was right-handed.

Prosecutors say the Kapahulu man was motivated by jealousy over an ex-girlfriend.
