The Hamilton man disappeared on the night of May 6, 2013 after taking two strangers on a test drive of a truck he was trying to sell and his body was found a week later burned beyond recognition.

Dellen Millard, 30, of Toronto and Mark Smich, 28, from Oakville, Ont., have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.

The Crown alleges Bosma was shot inside his truck and later his body was burned in an incinerator.

Igor Tumanenko has told court about a test drive two men took in his Dodge Ram on May 5, 2013 - one of them, Smich, has admitted to being in the vehicle that day.

Tumanenko also said he remembered seeing the word "ambition" tattooed on the taller man's wrist, a clue that an investigator testified led to a breakthrough in the case. Millard has a similar tattoo on his wrist.

Tumanenko told the men he was familiar with the truck's diesel engine from his days in the Israeli army.

"There was a pause when he sit in driver seat," Tumanenko said, referring to the tall man that was now driving his truck at the entrance of Highway 407, just north of Toronto.

"Shorter guy (in the back) asked 'what did you do in Israel army?"' Tumanenko told court.

"I look at him and said 'you don't want to know what I did there."'

Last week, a former Millardair intern testified he found Bosma's truck inside an aircraft hangar owned by Region of Waterloo International Airport.
