Closing arguments scheduled in Alphin murder trial

Nov 18, 2011

GREENVILLe - The Hunt County capital murder trial of Tracie Danielle Alphin could wrap up today, after both the prosecution and defense rested Thursday.

One of dozens to testify this week was David Earl Hickman, Alphin’s alleged co-actor in the 2008 murder of Jason Harrington. Hickman, who had previously pleaded guilty in exchange for a life prison term, incriminated Alphin on the charge.

Harrington was allegedly killed while the two defendants were in the course of committed a robbery.
