Trial to begin in fatal 2013 stabbing of Jamie Hahn
RALEIGH, N.C. — Jury selection is slated to start Monday in the trial of the man accused in the 2013 stabbing death of Jamie Hahn.
Hahn, a rising star in state Democratic politics, was stabbed to death in her north Raleigh home on April 22, 2013 after she allegedly confronted Jonathan Broyhill about money missing from a congressional campaign.
Before jury selection began, Broyhill’s attorney told the judge that his client tried to commit suicide.
According to an autopsy conducted by the state medical examiner, the 29-year-old was stabbed 24 times, which included wounds to her hands, arms, face, neck and back.
She died at WakeMed two days after she was assaulted.
