The William Balfour murder trial is drawing to a close as closing arguments were heard yesterday from both sides.

Unfortunately, it isn't exactly an open and shut case because there was no DNA proof leading back to Balfour.  However, after two weeks of testimony by the defense alone maybe that could be enough to convict him.  For more details on the trail, scroll down and press play to hear Tha Wire.

HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:

The late great Whitney Houston is going to be honored at the 2012 VH1 Divas event this year.  Whitney performed at the now iconic event back in 2003.  This winters ceremony will be all about Whitney too, so it should be pretty exciting to say the least.  So far, there's no word on the list of performers just yet, but of course I will keep you posted.

VH1 president Tom Calderone said, "We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney's music, it would be Divas."  I think so too.
