Woman on trial in slaying of War mayor

WELCH, W.Va. -- The trial of a woman accused of killing War Mayor Thomas Hatcher is underway in McDowell County Circuit Court.

Rebecca Hatcher of War is charged with first-degree murder in the death of the mayor, who was her father-in-law.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports that the prosecution rested its case Friday afternoon. The trial is scheduled to resume today.

City workers found the 72-year-old mayor's body in his home on July 17, 2012.

A co-defendant, Earl Click of Grundy, Va., is scheduled to stand trial in January. Click is Hatcher's brother. He also is charged with first-degree murder.
