YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Closing arguments could come sometime on Wednesday for two Youngstown men being tried together on murder charges.
Michael Austin and Hakeem Henderson are accused in the deaths of four people since 2011.
Police believe they may have been behind the murders of Adam Christian, Raymond Hayes, Ryan Slade and Keara McCullough.
The lead detective in the case took the witness stand on Tuesday afternoon.
Prosecutors say the two defendants acted as enforcers for the leader of a local drug trafficking ring.
While others in the ring are set for trial this summer, Austin and Henderson face life in prison if they are convicted.
