Jurors and alternates have been selected for the retrial of a federal agent charged with murder in a shooting at a Waikiki fast-food restaurant.

A state Judiciary spokeswoman says the jury consists of five men and seven women. The four alternate jurors are three women and one man.

The jury selection process was completed Wednesday.

Opening statements will begin Thursday in State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy's retrial.

Deedy claims he shot Kollin Elderts in self-defense during an altercation inside McDonald's in 2011. The agent from Arlington, Virginia was in Honolulu providing security for an economic summit. He was off-duty when he went to the McDonald's after a night of bar-hopping with friends.

His first trial ended with a deadlocked jury nearly a year ago. The judge declared a mistrial.
