WOODBURY - A convicted killer is back in court for a retrial of a 2003 murder case.
Former Dix Hills gym owner Christian Tarantino is charged with killing Vincent Gargiulo, of Queens, in 2003. Prosecutors say Tarantino killed Gargiulo because Gargiulo had a tape in which Tarantino confessed to two other murders.
The jury was deadlocked in last year's trial.
In a separate case, Tarantino was convicted of murdering armored car driver Julius Baumgardt during a 1994 Muttontown robbery.
