On this day in 2015, the Muslims were shot and killed in their Chapel Hill townhouse. Deah Barakat was attending UNC’s Dental School at the time and his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha was about to enroll there. Her sister, Razan, was a design student at N.C. State.
As the families of the victims remember their lost loved ones., prosecutors are preparing a case against accused gunman Craig Hicks.
He’s been waiting for a trial for three years now, and it might seem like a long time. But it’s not unusual in a case like this.
Here to provide some context is Colon Willoughby. He’s a partner at McGuireWoods law firm in Raleigh. He was also the Wake County District Attorney for nearly thirty years.
