Closing arguments begin in Prescott murder trial

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Attorneys in Prescott are making their final arguments Friday to jurors in the case of a stockbroker accused of murder.

Prosecutors contend Steven DeMocker bludgeoned his ex-wife to death with a golf club because he was deep in debt, wanted the insurance payment and didn't want to pay alimony.

Prosecutors don't have any direct evidence linking DeMocker to the July 2008 death of Carolyn Kennedy, no confession or eyewitness testimony. They say circumstantial evidence is enough to tie DeMocker to the murder.

Defense attorneys have been trying to deflect attention away from DeMocker and toward a man that had been living in Kennedy's guesthouse but who has since died.

DeMocker's first trial ended in a mistrial in November 2010 after his defense team quit the case.
