HAMILTON - The trial of two men accused of killing a Hamilton man who took them for a test drive in truck he was trying to sell is to hear more testimony from a tenant of the dead man.
Wayne De Boer, who began his testimony yesterday, said he agreed with Tim Bosma's widow that the two men who showed up for the test drive seemed sketchy.
Dellen Millard, of Toronto, and Mark Smich, from Oakville, Ont., have both pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Bosma's death.
The 32-year-old Bosma left his home on the evening of May 6, 2013 and was never seen alive again. His body was found more than a week later "burned beyond recognition."
The Crown alleged Bosma was shot inside his truck and his body was burned in an incinerator.
In his opening statement, Crown attorney Craig Fraser said police found gunshot residue as well as Bosma's blood both inside and outside the vehicle, and some of Bosma's bones were located inside the incinerator.
