DEFENSE TO BEGIN TODAY IN MURDER TRIAL

Tes­ti­mony con­tin­ues today in the mur­der trial of an Oak­wood woman in Defi­ance County Court.

The pros­e­cu­tion rested Mon­day in the trial of 46 year old Judith Hawkey, who is charged with aggra­vated mur­der and other charges in the death of her hus­band.

Pros­e­cu­tors say Hawkey made her then ten year old step­son shoot and kill her hus­band, who was the boy’s father, back in Novem­ber of 2003. That shoot­ing was orig­i­nally ruled acci­den­tal, but the case was re-opened in 2012.

Twenty four wit­nesses took the stand after the pros­e­cu­tion opened its case one week ago.

The defense will start to present their case today.
