A second trial has begun in connection with E2 nightclub tragedy.The city is accusing the club and its owners Dwain Kyles and Calvin Hollins of criminal contempt for ignoring a housing court order to shutdown the club.

A trial in 2005 ended in a mistrial, but the state appellate court ruled the defendants can be retried.

In February 2003, 21 people were killed in a stampede down the stairwell of the club.
