Closing Arguments Are Set For Today In The New York Church Killing Trial

07.05.16 | Sarah Harnisch

The murder trial is wrapping up for a central New York woman charged with taking part in a group attack that killed her half brother and injured another during a counseling session.

Sarah Ferguson is one of nine relatives and church members charged following the beating death of 19-year-old Lucas Leonard, during a 14 hour session that put his younger brother Christopher in the hospital last October.

Ferguson is the first to stand trial. She has waived her right to a jury trial, so a judge will issue a verdict.
