Hill was the only person in Graham's hotel room at the time of her death, surveillance footage showed, according to a press statement from the prosecution.
Hill was charged with the murder of Graham in July 2020 after the woman's body was found by housekeepers at the Sure Stay Hotel in Shallotte, North Carolina. Graham had an "on and off" relationship with Hill, police revealed, according to Star News.

The former nuclear plant worker was later arrested by law enforcement, and he confessed to shooting Graham after she was found texting other men while at the hotel, according to officials.
Hill made news in 2017 when he won a $10 million prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket in 2017.
