Best Man Fatally Stabs Bride
According to The Inquisitir, Jonathan Wayne Broyhill has been arrested for fatally stabbing Jamie Kirk Hahn and wounding her husband Nation Richard Hahn at a North Carolina home. The catch 22? Broyhill served as best man at their wedding in 2009.
Hahn’s family said in a statement: “We lost a beautiful and loving wife, daughter and friend … We all lost a pure and brave spirit. She had a gift for bringing us together – black and white, young and old, gay and straight. She challenged us to work together for a better world.”
Police did not release a motive for the attack but did say that the stabbing was not “domestic related.”
WTVD reports that Broyhill has been charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. Raleigh police say they are in the process of charging him with murder.
Sources say a possible motive for the attack could involve missing money. Broyhill apparently kept the books for Jamie Hahn’s business and political campaigns.
