Charlevoix County Murder Trial: Closing Arguments To Begin

Continuing coverage on a Charlevoix County murder trial.

Closing arguments are expected Wednesday, and then a jury will decide whether a man stabbed his friend to death.

Matthew Fruge is accused of murdering his friend Jacob Conklin outside Fruge’s home in Bay Township last October.

The final witness is on the stand.

Lawyers are questioning her about the levels of drugs and alcohol found in Fruge’s system just hours after the stabbing happened.

Once her testimony is complete, we expect closing arguments to begin and then the jury will get the case. 

We have a crew in the courtroom for closing arguments and we will have an updates on a verdict when one comes down.
