[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The trial of amateur kickboxer Corbit Ahn charged in the murder of an 18-year-old woman whose nude body was found in Kalihi opened Thursday in Circuit Court.

Deputy City Prosecutor Dean Young said Ahn manhandled and beat Iris Rodrigues-Kaikana, ripped off her clothes, sexually assaulted her and then squeezed the life out of her.

But Ahn’s lawyer Donald Wilkerson suggested that police may have missed critical evidence in the August 2009 murder of Rodrigues-Kaikana. However, Wilkerson didn’t say what police may have missed or provide an alternative theory for Rodrigues-Kaikana’s death.
