Details to follow. 

Original Story

Corey Hill is accused of kidnapping and raping a woman in Pensacola last August. 

Today is the second day of the trial and just before lunch, the state and the defense wrapped up their closing arguments.

The state claims the victim was not able to consent to sex because she was so drunk. The defense says there’s no evidence to that.

The victim was asked if she was making the story up because she was embarrassed, and she denied that.

The state also claims that Hill stalked the victim and her friend while she was stumbling around downtown that August night.

The judge was giving the jury deliberation instructions just before 11:30 Friday.
