Retrial underway for 2 men accused of Chinatown murder

Two men accused of gunning down another man in the middle of a Chinatown street are being retried for murder and a number of other charges.

Iosefa Pasene and Zorro Rye are accused of killing Joseph Peneueta in March 2009.

Prosecutors believe it was a turf war between Pasene and Rye, from San Francisco, and the victim who lived at The Towers at Kuhio Park in Kalihi.

The previous trial ended in a hung jury last summer.
