Jurors have begun deliberating in the case of a Vermont man charged with beating his wife to death when she returned to her New Hampshire home after filing for divorce.
Forty-five-year-old James Robarge is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Kelly Robarge on June 27, 2013. Her badly decomposed and animal-ravaged body was found 10 days later in Unity.
Prosecutor Susan Morrell told jurors in her final argument Monday that the evidence against Robarge is overwhelming and that he lied to jurors about his actions the day his wife was killed.
His lawyer told jurors they should acquit Robarge because there's no evidence of where, when or how she died.
The jury of seven women and five men got the case Monday afternoon.
