Accused Stalker Doesn't Take the Stand

The man accused of stalking KYW Anchor Erika von Tiehl decided not to take the stand at his trial. 

John Hart kept everyone waiting until the last minute Monday, changing his mind several times before opting not to testify.

Hart is on trial for charges he stalked the KYW Anchor in 2011 after she broke off their brief relationship.

Hart's decision ended a brief defense. The day finished with closing arguments.

Common Pleas Court Judge Gwendolyn N. Bright told the jury of seven men and five women to return this morning for instructions in the law and deliberations.

There could be a verdict coming down sometime Today.
