Speegle Attorney Asks for Charges to be Dropped

The man accused of pushing his girlfriend off a balcony to her death on New Year's Eve goes back to court Monday morning.

Jonathan Speegle's attorney wants the charges against him dropped.

"My girlfriend just jumped off the balcony of our hotel room," said Speegle to a 911 dispatcher on December 31, 2008.

His girlfriend, Nicole Hammond, plummeted 16 stories from a balcony at the Orlando World Center Marriott and died instantly.

From the very beginning, investigators seemed skeptical of Speegle's story, and he was indicted for second-degree murder in May.

But now his attorney, Mark NeJame, accuses investigators of contradicting themselves and says the charges should be thrown out.

"All the indications that I've received so far clearly suggest that he did not do that which he's been accused of," said NeJame. "For it to be suggested that somebody should be standing for murder charges in circumstances like this, I don't think it's appropriate."

NeJame also argues that this case is based on purely circumstantial evidence.
