Dentist's Attorneys Make Case For Self-Defense At His Murder Trial

Mocksville, NC -- Self-defense or murder?

Attorneys for a Clemmons dentist are building their argument their client acted in self-defense.

State prosecutors say Kirk Turner's actions against his wife amount to first degree murder.

State prosecutors and defense attorneys are each building their case and it takes time.

They planned to get through four days worth of testimony in one day, yesterday, but needed one more day to do it.

Defense co-counsel Brad Bannon brought out the weapon allegedly used against Dr. Kirk Turner.
He also went over the pocketknife the doctor allegedly used to kill his estranged wife Jennifer.
