The prosecution wrapped up Tuesday in the Christopher Deedy murder trial.

The last witness to take the stand was retired detective Theodore Coons.

He was one of the first homicide detectives at the Waikiki McDonald’s where Deedy is accused of shooting to death Kollin Elderts.

Prosecutors asked Coons how he determined Elderts’ cause of death.

“The totality of everything. When you watch the video, you see a point where the firearm is in the general area of Mr. Elderts body as they were traversing the cash register area,” retired Honolulu Police Department detective Theodore Coons said.

Detective Coons will be cross-examined by defense attorneys Wednesday and then defense witnesses are expected to take the stand.
