Murders are obviously more common in cities, but one particular murder trial has been catching attention in Raleigh because of the fairly sordid details. On April 22, 2013, a man named Jonathan Broyhill viciously attacked his two friends and ended up killing one of them (Jamie Hahn) and seriously injuring the other (Nation Hahn). Broyhill is now facing charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder and assault (with the intent to kill).
Details of the Crime
Jamie Hahn was a Democratic strategist who had confronted Broyhill about allegedly embezzling campaign funds. Nation, the surviving friend and the husband of the decedent, was at home during the incident. While he was upstairs and his wife and Broyhill were talking downstairs, he heard his wife scream, rushed to her, and saw Jamie bloodied in the kitchen floor. Broyhill was holding an 8-inch knife over her and then attacked Nation.
