Murder trial continues
(2008-07-15)
(WOUB) - The trial for a man accused of killing his brother-in-law began yesterday in Chillicothe.

Bernard Holbrook is charged with a single count of murder with a gun specification after the April 16th shooting of Jay Broughton.

Opening arguments indicated there were tensions between the two over a water line leak and a debt.

The defense said that Holbrook was surprised when Broughton approached him and felt threatened...and defended himself with a 22 caliber pistol.

The prosecution said that Broughton's wife claimed that after being shot he took the gun from Holbrook and had the opportunity to shoot back, but didn't.
