BROOKLYN - A new trial has begun for one of the men accused of brutally beating an Ecuadorian immigrant to death.

Last month, a judge declared a mistrial in Keith Phoenix's case after the jury couldn't come to a verdict.

Phoenix and another man, Hakim Scott, were accused of killing Jose Sucuzhanay and attacking his brother because they thought the two men were gay.

Scott was convicted of manslaughter and is scheduled to be sentenced July 15.
