Attorneys to give closing arguments in case of man charged in death of NC political strategist


RALEIGH, North Carolina — After days of testimony in which jurors heard from 19 witnesses, attorneys are set to deliver closing arguments in the trial of a man accused in the stabbing death of a North Carolina Democratic political strategist.

Local media outlets report that 33-year-old Jonathan Broyhill is charged in the stabbing death of 28-year-old Jamie Kirk Hahn in 2013. He also is accused of attempting to kill Hahn's husband and his friend Nation Hahn.

Prosecutors contend that Broyhill wanted to kill Jamie Hahn because of questions about the campaign account for former U.S. Rep. Brad Miller who had contracted with Hahn's company.

The jurors, who are expected to get the case late Wednesday, will be able to consider either first- or second-degree murder in their deliberations.
