Oklahoma jury to hear closing arguments in Kenya abuse trial

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Attorneys in the federal trial of an Oklahoma man charged with sexually abusing Kenyan orphans are set to give their closing arguments to a jury.

Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday after testimony concludes in the trial of 20-year-old Matthew Lane Durham.

Durham is charged with 17 counts of sexual misconduct, including aggravated sexual abuse and engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places. He has pleaded not guilty and faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Durham testified in his own defense on Wednesday and denied abusing any children. Durham had been a volunteer at the Upendo Children's Home in Nairobi, Kenya, since 2012 and was on his fourth visit to the orphanage when he was accused of molesting the children between April and June 2014.
