Jurors deliberating in trial over 1979 Pa. murder

November 21, 2013

BEAVER, Pa. (AP) — Jurors are deliberating the fate of a former western Pennsylvania official accused of killing his ex-girlfriend more than 30 years ago.

Sixty-seven-year-old Gregory Hopkins used to be a borough councilman in Bridgewater. He is charged in the death of a woman with whom he was having an affair.

Twenty-three-year-old Catherine Walsh was found strangled and bound in her Monaca apartment in September 1979.

Hopkins was charged in 2012 after new DNA evidence linked him to case.

Lawyers for both sides finished their closing arguments Thursday morning in Beaver County Court.

Hopkins has testified that he hadn't been to Walsh's apartment for a few weeks and wasn't there the night she died.
