Jonathan Wayne Broyhill, 32, is charged with first-degree murder in the April 22, 2013, stabbing of Jamie Kirk Hahn, 29, in her north Raleigh home. She died of her wounds two days later. Broyhill also is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill in the stabbing of Hahn's husband.
Broyhill worked for Hahn's political fundraising firm, Sky Blue Strategies, and managed campaign funds for former Congressman Brad Miller.

Broyhill is expected to go to trial in February.
