Retrial continues for BK teen accused of murder

BROOKLYN - The retrial of a Brooklyn teenager accused in the murder of a radio newsman picks up again this week.

John Katehis is accused of murdering George Weber in his Carroll Gardens home back in March 2009 and this time around, officials say he may take the stand.

According to prosecutors, the two met through an online sex ad. The last trial ended with a hung jury after Katehis admitted to the crime on tape, but claims it was self defense.
