The Tim Bosma murder trial resumes in Hamilton on Monday after taking a three-day break.
Testimony will resume on Monday with a man who provided an important tip to Hamilton Police still on the stand.
Last week, Igor Tumanenko told the court about a test drive two men took in his Dodge Ram on May 5th, 2013. Mark Smich, one of the two men charged in connection with Bosma’s murder, has admitted to being in the vehicle that day.
Dellen Millard, 30, of Toronto and Mark Smich, 28, from Oakville, have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.
Tumanenko also testified he saw the word “ambition” tattooed on the wrist of one of the two men. An investigator has testified that led to a breakthrough in the case. Millard has a similar tattoo on his wrist.
Bosma disappeared on the night of May 6th, 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.
The Crown alleges Bosma was shot inside his truck and later his body was burned in an incinerator.
The first week of the trial has been especially hard on the Bosma family. Tim’s wife Sharlene was among the first to testify. The trial is expected to last four months.
It’s likely it will get even harder for Bosma’s family to listen to evidence presented in the case. Police evidence from the arresting officer is expected to be presented this week, at which time the court.
Video evidence of the victim being incinarated is likely to be shown in court sometime in the next two weeks.
