Opening statements are over and testimony has begun in the retrial of a man accused in a deadly fight over a parking spot in the East Village.

Oscar Fuller is being retried on assault charges, after his first case ended in a mistrial.

Authorities say he punched Lana Rosas in March 2011 during a dispute over a parking spot.

Prosecutors say Rosas fell, struck her head and died of a brain injury.

Fuller's attorney claims self-defense.

The defendant faces up to seven years in prison.
