NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) --
A second murder trial is beginning for a neo-Nazi whose tattoos are being covered by a cosmetologist so jurors can't see them.
John Allen Ditullio is charged in the stabbing death of 17-year-old Kristofer King and accused of wounding Patricia Wells inside her mobile home in 2003.
Ditullio has a large swastika, barbed wire and a vulgarity tattooed on his face and neck. A judge ruled the tattoos could sway a jury's opinion and ordered them covered. The state is paying a cosmetologist up to $150 a day during Ditullio's trial to cover the tattoos.
During his first trial, a jury deadlocked after deliberating for
almost 10 hours. The retrial is scheduled to begin Monday.
